The Certificate is designed to provide students with a working knowledge of data management, data processing, data visualization, prediction, and modern techniques to assess, model, and analyze real-world problems involving legal data. The curriculum comprises 15 credit hours from required courses. Six of the 15 credit hours will come from non-COL classes. (See FAQ here.) In addition, students must take a minimum of six credits from a designated list of electives. Students will participate in substantial experiential components and will complete a major writing assignment to satisfy the COL’s writing requirement.
A strong market exists for lawyers who are familiar with and experienced in the tools of legal analytics, using computational and statistical modeling, analysis, and visualization of various kinds of legal data to accomplish both descriptive and predictive goals.
