Workshop Announcement: Conducting Empirical Legal Scholarship

By Michael Dorf

I don't usually promote conferences and the like on my blog but I'm making an exception today as a kind of thank-you to Lee Epstein, who co-organized a conference last fall that I found very interesting. Accordingly . . . 


The 14th annual workshop on Conducting Empirical Legal Scholarship, co-taught by Lee Epstein and Andrew D. Martin, will run from June 15-June 17 at Washington University in St. Louis. The workshop is for law school faculty, lawyers, political science faculty, and graduate students interested in learning about empirical research and how to evaluate empirical work. It provides the formal training necessary to design, conduct, and assess empirical studies, and to use statistical software (Stata) to analyze and manage data.

Participants need no background or knowledge of statistics to enroll in the workshop. Registration is here. For more information, please contact Lee Epstein.
