Welcoming Thomas Bruce and Jerry Goldman to our Board
Today we're proud to announce that Tom Bruce and Jerry Goldman recently joined the Free Law Project Board of Directors.
Tom is the Director and co-founder of the Legal Information Institute at the Cornell Law School, where he has built a strong organization that serves millions of people every year. He has consulted on four continents, is a member of a number of standards bodies and committees, and in a previous life made the first browser for Microsoft Windows.
Jerry is the founder and director of the Oyez Project, a vast and widely utilized multimedia archive devoted to the U.S. Supreme Court and its work. He's an influential author on a number of political and legal topics, and has received numerous awards for his efforts at Oyez and as a professor at both Chicago-Kent College of Law, and Northwestern University's Department of Political Science.
Fellow Board Member, Brian Carver, said, "Mike and I have been directing Free Law Project for a while and when we thought about who we would most like to help us with our mission, Tom Bruce and Jerry Goldman were our top two choices. We're thrilled that these two, who have so much experience in making legal materials available to the public online, have agreed to help Free Law Project advance its public access mission."
