Subject: dotLaw proposal


      This proposal is one of the more complex of the TLD proposals pending before ICANN (viz.:  .tv, .museum, or .sex.), but its complexity lends great promise.  There is a wealth of "legal" information on the web, but the lack of top-down organization has meant that there are only a few good, general sources of information, many (hard-to-find) particularized sources, and way-too-many meta-sites (consisting primarily of links to other sites, most of which are also meta-sites).

      The dotLaw proposal could improve the ability of the legal community to develop its knowledge base on the web, and could dramatically improve the usefulness of the web for practitioners.  The web's utility lies in ease of commerce and information.  A well-managed, monitored .law domain would present a vast improvement in the relevance of the 'net's contents and the efficiency with which practitioners use the 'net.
