LAWS 4415 Legal Analytics: Applying Data and Analytic Thought to Legal Problems (Fall: 2 )

Course Description

William Gibson said “[t]he future has already arrived. It’s just not evenly distributed yet.” This course introduces the legal tools that have arrived, but are not yet evenly distributed, and will teach you how to use analytics to improve legal decision making. We will explore behavioral economics, data analysis and visualization, statistical methods, artificial intelligence, and game theory. Through demonstrations, in-class projects, and a semester long course project, we will apply them to solve legal problems and learn to efficiently manage, collect, explore, and analyze various forms of legal data. You do not need prior college coursework in math, statistics, data science, or economics to take this course.
