January 30: Georgetown Law Conference: Big Data and Big Challenges for Law and Legal Information

Some legal informatics and legal methodology presentations are being given at Georgetown Law Library Symposium in Celebration of 125 Years: Big Data and Big Challenges for Law and Legal Information, being held today, 30 January 2013, at Georgetown University Law Center, Washington, DC.

Twitter hashtag for the event is #GtownLawBigData

The program appears below. I believe Josh Blackman’s presentation deals with quantitative legal prediction.
