Jens Frankenreiter.

I work and teach at           WashU in St. Louis.


I work at the intersection of business law, contract law, and empirical methods.

My research utilizes empirical methods to study the intersection of business law, contract law, and comparative law. I am particularly interested in the changes that globalization and new technologies visit upon these fields. My work draws on methods from economics, statistics, and data science to improve our understanding of contracting, private and public lawmaking, and legal institutions. A particular focus of my work is on the use of large amounts of texts and other forms of big data.

Further information about my work is available on my Google Scholar Page and my SSRN Author Page.

Until June 2021, I served as the Postdoctoral Fellow in Empirical Law and Economics at Columbia's Millstein Center for Global Markets and Corporate Ownership. In the fall of 2021, I will join Washington University in St. Louis as an Associate Professor of Law.
