Center for Legal Data Science

Research and Consulting

Legal data science refers to the computer-assisted, systematic collection, processing, and analysis of legal data.

The aim of legal data science is not to replace hermeneutic work on law, but to complement it and, thus, to contribute to a multi-perspective approach to law.   

Research areas of the CLDS are:

  • Empirical Legal Research,
  • Computer-assisted methods of law-making, law application and finding the law, 
  • Fundamental research in the working areas of the CLDS.

Our research projects are carried out with both third-party and university funding.

The CLDS offers consulting on quantitative methods in the context of the law.
