What is computational law?

Computational law is an emerging new field of law that attracts a lot of attention. But what is it exactly? How does it work? And exactly how much legal reasoning can be automated and managed by machines.

In this Legal Tech Academy webinar, we dived into the world of computational law to figure out how lawyers should approach it: To what degree is it relevant for the legal industry to know about computational law? And what can lawyers do to learn more about it?

To answer all those questions, we invited two members om the new MIT Computational Law Report.

One is Daniel “Dazza” Greenwood who is a researcher at MIT Media Lab, a lecturer on computational law and legal engineering at MIT Connection Science, the Executive Director of, and the publisher of MIT Computational Law Report.  

The other is Bryan Wilson who is a Fellow at MIT Connection Science and the Editor in Chief of the MIT Computational Law Report. Legaltech News listed him as 1 of the 18 Millennials Changing the Face of Legal Tech for work he completed as a fellow with the inaugural class of fellows with ABA Center for Innovation.
