Explanation:
"Casuistry" (in the sense of intellectual dishonesty, oversophisticated argument, etc.) would be the wrong word here. What your sentence calls for is one of the other meanings, such as 1) case histories, 2) precedents, or 3) literature (in the sense of 'collected information'). For instance, you could translate the sentence this way: "The body of precedents in the area of cyberlaw is still very small." -- Hope this helps, HC
