Law; Legal networks; legal network science; Germany’s Federal Constitutional Court

Corinna Coupette introduces legal network science to the German legal discourse. Based on an original dataset of decisions by Germany’s Federal Constitutional Court, she develops tools for modeling, measuring, and mapping the law.
