Abstract

The article aims at investigating the relationship between the law and its visual depiction, in the light of the growing use of vast amounts of data to represent social phenomena. Visual analytics and infographics are part of contemporary forms of representation and knowledge. To what extent can lawyers do - or should do - without them and what profit, instead, might they take from them?

Keywords: big data, data visualization, visual analytics, infographics, images of law
