LawFont is a group blog dedicated to discussing issues with a tech and law flavour. Because of the nature of the subjects, and the bloggers, the discussion often flows into economics, policy, and the occasional bit of pure geekiness.

All of the contributors work in the law, with some element of tech mixed in. The blog reflects our multi-jurisdictional interests, too. (nb, you can limit the cases discussed to a particular jurisdiction such as the USA or UK by using the category tags to the right.)
