Today, the Head of IMG Office, Mr Argjent Karai had a meeting with the Head of LOVDATA Norway Mr Odd Paulson regarding the ongoing Project in Kosovo, the LawData System for the Kosovo Assembly.
The LawData Project is financed by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Prishtina, implementated by IMG on behalf of the Kosovo Assembly.
The Project aims to develop and deploy a legal information service, "the LawData System” which will provide a free online service containing structured and consolidated laws and by-laws and to enable easier navigation to legislation applicable in the Republic of Kosovo and to prevent the usage of outdated or no longer applicable laws and by-laws; The key idea of this initiative is to increase the general public's access to justice by eliminating doubts about what legal provisions are in force. This will be done by structuring text of a legal document and by consolidating all their subsequent amendments into a single text.
The System is expected to be operational during April 2022.
The Norwegian LOVDATA has been an inspiration for the Kosovo LawData Project while supporting the initiative since the beginning.
