Abstract

The adoption of a “network perspective” has been one of the most influential recent developments in the biological, physical, and social sciences. Legal scholars too have begun to take a network approach, posing legal questions as network problems and exploring legal data from a network perspective. This Article reviews the existing literature on legal network analysis, suggests directions for future work, and notes some important caveats for scholars hoping to adopt network analytic methods.

Keywords: Network Analysis, Legal Networks, Empirical Legal Research
