Welcome!

Welcome to Introduction to Quantitative and Computational Legal Reasoning, informally named "Sociological Gobbledygook" in honor of Chief Justice Roberts's slightly math-phobic remark at oral argument in Gill v. Whitford. This course is offered at the University of Iowa College of Law in Spring 2019, by Paul Gowder.

This is a totally open-source course. There is a Github repository with developing materials and discussions. Please feel free to make a suggestion or start a conversation in the issues, or even make a pull request. However, be aware that while the course is in progress, the Github repo may be a little bit messy---its open-source-ness is mostly for the purposes of repetition and (ideally) export to other universities; I probably won't organize the repo properly until the first iteration is complete.

To see the materials that are released thus far, use the links at the top of this page. In addition, you should take a look at the Syllabus and the list of tags that describe the subject matter of our lessons.
