IDEAL Workshop: CS+Law: Evaluation and Accountability
This workshop is part of the Institute for Data, Econometrics, Algorithms, and Learning (IDEAL) Special Quarter on Data Science and Law, co-organized by Northwestern Professors Jason D. Hartline and Daniel W. Linna Jr.

Synopsis: Courts, administrative agencies, lawyers, and legal professionals increasingly use computational technologies in the delivery of legal information and services, allocation of benefits, enforcement of laws and regulations, and resolution and adjudication of disputes. Computational technologies hold great promise for improving legal services, legal systems, and access to justice. At the same time, the use of these technologies presents risks and raises important questions. This workshop focuses on evaluation and accountability. How do we evaluate effectiveness and measure the impact of technologies for law? How do we ensure accountability, including that uses of technologies for law comport with laws, regulations, and legal principles? Our speakers (Cary Coglianese, Joan Feigenbaum, Maura Grossman, and JJ Prescott) will present their research related to these topics.
