Course Description

This course continues and builds on Empirical Legal Studies I (LAW 9102). Students will use the methods and materials they develop in the first course to conduct and write an empirical legal study. Students will present drafts of their project to the class and will offer constructive criticism of other students’ papers. Though it is not required, we expect that many students will hope to later submit their papers for publication, perhaps with advice and/or collaboration with a faculty member.
