Title: “Measuring and managing legal complexity: An overview of the intellectual agenda”
Modern societies rely upon law as the primary mechanism to control their development and manage their conflicts. Through carefully designed rights and responsibilities, institutions and procedures, law can enable humans to engage in increasingly complex social and economic activities. Increasingly diverse and interconnected societies create increasingly diverse and interconnected rules and thus the study of legal complexity provides a useful lens through which to observe and understand modern societies.
In this talk, I will discuss academic efforts to model /measure legal complexity. In addition, I will highlight some of the efforts to date to manage legal complexity.
