The success of last year Legal Informatics and Legal Information Technology Poznan workshop encourage us to organize the next one. The LIT2010 event will take place in Berlin as part of the 13th International Conference on Business Information Systems. The LIT Workshop therefore becomes an annual meeting and gathers people interested in broadly understood Legal Informatics and its applications. Next year we decided to invite people dealing with insurance to show its close relation to legal and information technology domains. In 2009 we published all accepted papers in Springer Series: Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing. We are planning to sustain the cooperation with the publisher. Hence there is a need for forums that discuss new research and innovative applications in Law, Information Technology as well as Insurance. The workshop is receptive to all papers dealing with any topic in these interdisciplinary domains on the verge of Law and Technology.
