This open public research and development site explores the emerging field of computational law and legal informatics as social science, technical capability and business innovation. This site is curated by MIT Media Lab's Dazza Greenwood as part of Prof. Alex "Sandy" Pentland's MIT Human Dynamics Lab work on Social Physics and Connection Science, with emphasis on the legal and policy dimensions of big data and personal data markets and ecologies.
Initial Sneak Preview: Uniform Law Adoption Analytics
There are many facets of the law to which data science and computational legal science methods can be applies and many aspects of such science that can be applied to any given facet of the law. One of the promising entry points being pursued by the Legal Science research team here at the MIT Media Lab is with an important body of statutes known as "Uniform Law". The #LegalScience research team is now commencing a research study to explore the data and systems comprising uniform laws of the states and territories of the United States.
