Legal issues of the information society - first workshop discussion

The aim of the Online Legal Encyclopedia is to present the current state of knowledge of the entire Hungarian legal science and to create a reliable knowledge base, accessible free of charge to all interested parties, in order to improve the Hungarian legal culture.
