Columbia Law School Data Lab

The first data science lab embedded in a law school uses statistical machine-learning and data visualization to support empirical legal research at Columbia Law School and provide analytical tools for corporate-governance practitioners.


The Corporate Reporting and OWNership (CROWN) Database provides information on corporate governance and investment advisers extracted from SEC filings by researchers at Columbia Law School.
