Dan Katz has a proposal for an MIT School of Law grounded in computational legal studies. How many professors at Yale or Harvard Law, he asks, "seriously know anything about legal information engineering, not normative argumentation or policy making." What better place to reimagine law in computational terms than MIT?
Of course, MIT might simply start a Department of Legal Engineering. Or LE, as it would presumably be known among the locals.
