Jurisdynamics describes the interplay between legal responses to exogenous change and the law’s endogenous adaptive capacity. This blog focuses on tools (mathematics, linguistics, complexity theory, and biology) and subjects (regulation, innovation, environmental law, and natural disasters) that invite jurisdynamic analysis. This blog is hosted by Jim Chen, dean and professor of law the University of Louisville.
