Ulex - The Open-Source Legal System - Launches Crowdfunding Campaign


August 24, 2018 ( Newswire) The Institute for Competitive Governance (ICG) has launched an IndieGoGo campaign for Ulex - the open-source civil legal system that offers simple, efficient, and fair conflict resolution outside of government-run justice systems. The funding will allow ICG to create an open source community of coders to turn Ulex's open source legal software into automated computer software that is easy to use.

Ulex protects human rights with an efficient and fair dispute resolution process, offering an alternative to corrupt and unjust legal systems imposed by oppressive governments. Ulex also offers a solid legal foundation for startup societies and breakaway nations to build their own justice systems. It is not imposed by any government, but instead adopted by the mutual consent of those it governs.

The brainchild of professor Tom W. Bell, the governing rules of Ulex are based on established practices by well regarded private, nongovernmental, and international organizations. ICG aims to create a "git for Ulex" that will allow the system to evolve from what coders would call a "standard kernel"--the few basic rules of Ulex v. 1.1. This online platform will enable indices, which are similar to "repositories" in git.

"Like choosing between Mac OS or Linux, citizens can now choose their legal system based on the quality of service they provide.," says Joe McKinney, founder and CEO of Startup Societies Foundation. "In an era where citizens across the world are increasingly distrustful of their leaders and legal systems, Ulex offers fair and efficient justice for everyone - not just the elite."

The default procedure for resolving disputes in Ulex v. 1.1 has three elements:

  1. Judges: Each party chooses a judge, who together choose a third.
  2. Remedies: The judges choose a remedy offered by one of the parties.
  3. Costs: The losing party pays the winning party's legal costs.

It's simple, efficient, fair, and open-source - meaning Ulex can be adopted and altered to fit the wants and needs of any society. The ultimate goal is to provide a digital platform where different versions of Ulex can be uploaded and downloaded at ease, making it easier for judges to reach a fair ruling and giving citizens quick and easy access to the laws governing them.

Eventually, the platform aims to allow users to run Ulex in place, online. This will require coding a user interface, creating case administration tools, tracking the evolution of different indices, and allowing access to the history of system. Ulex has already recruited several developers for the project, with many more expressing interest in helping.
