About Program on Law and Computation

The Program on Law and Computation is a new program intended to further the study of ways in which advanced computation can further the study and understanding of law.  Its focus is broad, including  statistics, finance, actuarial finance, game theory, decision theory, network theory, computational linguistics, data mining, theories of computation, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and the economic analysis of law.  The program currently encompasses two core courses, Analytical Methods for Lawyers and Computational Law and fits well with other courses periodically offered by the Law Center, including Law and Economics,  Accounting and Finance for Lawyers, and Antitrust.  It likewise supports other programs at the school such as tax, intellectual property and information law, and health law,  by providing students and faculty with useful methodologies and skills.
