About Computational Legal Studies Blog
The Computational Legal Studies Blog was founded on March 17, 2009. The CLS Blog is an attempt to disseminate legal or law related studies that employ a computational or complex systems component. We hope this venue will serve as a coordinating device for those interested in using such techniques to consider the development of legal systems and/or implementation of more reasoned public policy.
