Dear Erin,

 

You may wish to explore the program at http://www.leydesdorff.net/software/fulltext . I used it before for legal documents. The routine considers each document as a case and the words as variables and then generates input files for Pajek (and SPSS).

 

Best,

Loet

Dear Colleagues:

Can anyone recommend sources on the application of network analysis -- probably semantic network analysis -- to law or legal documents?

In particular, I am interested in constitutional systems, for which I have found some very interesting theoretical work from lawyers (Adrian Vermeule) and political scientists (Jenna Bednar). I am looking more for applications and methodological help.

Thanks in advance and best wishes,
Erin McGrath
