Conducting Empirical Legal Scholarship Workshop - 2005

Fourth Annual Mini Course for Law Professors
9-10-11 May 2005

In January, AALS President William Hines announced that the theme for 2005 is Empirical Scholarship.  This emphasis highlights the growing importance of empirical work in the legal academy.  This course will provide the formal training necessary to design and conduct rigorous empirical studies and to use statistical software to manage and analyze data.  It will also enable participants to critically evaluate the empirical work of others.  Click here to view brochure.pdf.
