Visualizing Law in the Digital Age
Law has entered the visual digital age. How truth and justice are represented and assessed in court (and out) increasingly depend on what electronic screens display. In this issue, distinguished legal and social science scholars explore new approaches to legal scholarship and legal practice that illuminate and seek to work through the vicissitudes of visualizing law in the digital age. These articles were originally presented at a symposium held at New York Law School and Cardozo Law School in October 2011 and sponsored by the Institute for Information Law & Policy at New York Law School, the New York Law School Law Review, and Cardozo Law School.
