     The Legal Informatics and Legal Information Technology (LIT)
Workshop is an annual event which gathers people interested in broadly
understood Legal Informatics and its applications. The LIT 2011 meeting
will take place in Poznan as part of the 14th International Conference
on Business Information Systems. As a continuation of previous editions,
we invite people dealing with different domains closely related to legal
matter and Information Technology.
     The 4th Legal Informatics and Legal Information Technology Workshop
will be a multi-disciplinary, one-day workshop that will bring together
practitioners and researchers to investigate challenges and
opportunities in the emerging trends on the verge of law and IT. The
workshop will examine vital issues, including law-related business
processes, legal ontologies, description frameworks, discussing 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.
     In the year 2010 all papers accepted to the workshop have been
