Graphics and visuals of U.S. law

There have been many efforts over the past few decades to use visualization methods and technologies to create graphical representations of the law.  Alan Rothman has written a short article Recent Visualization Projects Involving US Law and the Supreme Court discussing two projects.

The first is an overview of visualizations of the U.S. Constitution by Prof. Harry Surdon. 

The second refers to a forthcoming article on the study of a quantitative analysis  of the Writing Style of the U.S. Supreme Court, by Keith Carlson, Michael A. Livermore, and Daniel Rockmore, Dated March 11, 2015.

The use of graphs and other visualizations is an exciting trend in the study and analysis of law.  The linked article contains links to further your research.
