7 … Evidence-Based Jurisprudence meets Legal Linguistics. Unlikely Blends Made in Germany, BYU L. Rev. 43 (2018), S. 14731501, gemeinsam mit Friedemann VogelGerman legal thinking is infamous for its hair-splittingly sophisticated dogmatism. Some of its other research contributions are frequently overlooked, both at home and abroad. Two such secondary streams recently coalesced into a new corpus-based research approach to legal practice: Empirical legal research (which had blossomed in Germany already by 1913) and research on language and law (following German pragmatist philosopher Wittgenstein 1922). The article introduces these research traditions in their current German incarnations (Evidence-Based Jurisprudence and Legal Linguistics) and shows how three common features – their proclaimed pragmatism, their skepticism towards legal authority and their big data strategy – inspired a new corpus-based research agenda: Computer Assisted Legal Linguistics (CAL²).
