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).

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,
