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 have been 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 will provide participants opportunities to learn through
faculty lectures, drawing upon data and examples for cutting edge
empirical legal studies, and participating in experiments.   There will
be numerous opportunities for participants to discuss their own
works-in-progress or project ideas with the instructors.

  • Eric A. Helland, Robert J. Lowe Professor of Economics, Claremont McKenna College, and
  • Jonathan Klick, Maurice R. Greenberg Visiting Professor of Law at Yale Law School and Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania.
