Legal Analytics 1

This is the first course in a two-course sequence, and it assumes no prior knowledge of statistics/quantitative thinking. You will learn basic concepts and will receive an introduction to R (the open source programming language which is lingua franca of statistical computing). Our goal is to imbue students with the capability to understand the process of extracting actionable knowledge from data, to distinguish themselves in legal proceedings involving data or analysis, and to assist in firm and in-house management, including billing, case forecasting, process improvement, resource management and financial operations. At a minimum, we believe that this training will make you a more well-rounded, 21st-century professional.
