Event Details

  • Date:
  • Venue: George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School
  • Division: The Henry G. Manne Program on the Law and Economics

Program Description: The Workshop for Law Professors on Empirical Methods is designed to teach law professors the conceptual and practical skills required to (1) understand and evaluate others’ empirical studies, and (2) design and implement their own empirical studies.

Participants are not expected to have background in statistical knowledge or empirical skills prior to enrollment.  Instructors are selected in part to demonstrate the development of empirical studies in a wide-range of legal and institutional settings including: antitrust, business law, bankruptcy, class actions, contracts, criminal law and sentencing, federalism, finance, intellectual property, and securities regulation.

Class sessions provide participants opportunities to learn through faculty lectures, drawing upon data and examples for cutting edge empirical legal studies, and participating in experiments.

The LEC offers a $750 honorarium for successful completion of the workshop.
