Computational Law

Past Offerings

Computational Law (4019): Computational Law is an innovative approach to Legal Informatics concerned with the representation of regulations in computable form. From a practical perspective, Computational Law is important as the basis for computer systems capable of performing useful legal calculations, such as compliance checking, legal planning, and regulatory analysis. In this course, we look at the theory of Computational Law, we review relevant technology and applications, we discuss the prospects and problems of Computational Law, and we examine its philosophical and legal implications. Elements used in grading: Work in the course consists of reading, class discussion, practical exercises, and a final project. Cross-listed with Computer Science (CS 204). This class is limited to 30 students (LAW 4019 & CS 204 combined). Interested students should enroll as early as possible in Axess to reserve a spot in the class. (http://complaw.stanford.edu/)
