About The Juris Lab
The Juris Lab is a forum where data analytics meet the law. The site consists of several parts. We have regular content developed by our contributors who have advanced expertise in quantitative legal analysis. This content comes in the form of short posts focused on decisions and individuals that play roles in all U.S. federal and state courts. We distill data so that it can be easily understood by audiences ranging from the legal industry, to the politically conscious public, to academics. Since we work from quantitative data there is also a data section where datasets can be accessed for public consumption. In the future larger databases will be made available through The Juris Lab to help make the world of big data and the law accessible to a larger audience. Feel free to browse the various sections of the site as they become available. If you have questions or are interested in learning more, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
