Goals and Objectives
The purpose of the XML Work Group is to develop one or more model Document Type Definitions (DTDs) for the filing and exchange of legal documents using XML standards.
UELCP supports and is a member of Legal XML. Founded in November 1998, Legal XML is a non-profit organization comprised of volunteer members from private industry, non-profit organizations, government, and academia. The mission of Legal XML is to develop open, non-proprietary technical standards for legal documents and related applications.
The XML Work Group is a virtual work group made up of individuals interested in exploring the use of XML standards as the basis for facilitating the electronic filing and exchange of legal documents. The group will function almost entirely in an electronic environment using tools such as e-mail, chat rooms, threaded discussion forums, list serves and similar tools.
