Ce zice legea

The problem: Although Romanian legislation is theoretically available online on several platforms, consolidated up-to-date versions of laws are either behind paywalls or very hard to find.

The solution: Ce Zice Legea is a web app designed to help citizens interested in the legislative process. Through it, users can follow the way in which a piece of legislation changes and evolves from its proposal as a bill to its signing into law, going through all intermediary steps. This makes it much easier to monitor how laws evolve as they make their way through Parliament and identify potential issues long before the bill becomes law.

I want to finance this project

Although it may seem a niche domain, given the complexity of the process and the legislative jargon, access to legislation is, in fact, a very broad area in which countless actors from different sectors are involved, which, according to the results of our research, have considerable bottlenecks in administering and improving it. The same attributes make it unnknown to the general public who, although is obliged to respect it and obey the rigors of its results, i.e. the laws, has great challenges in identifying and assimilating it.

A convoluted process and an extremely difficult jargon. These two main problems make access to open legislation very hard for the public at large who has to respect and obey the rigors of the law but oftentimes knows very little about them. What follows is a list of all the main blockages inn the field of open access to legislation in Romania.
