Conference on Empirical Legal Studies

Josh Wright —  25 February 2008

CELS 2008 will be held at Cornell Law School this year September 12 and 13.  Submissions are due by April 15th.  CELS has quickly become one of the best conferences of the year and I’m very much looking forward to attending.  Here’s the conference announcement:

The conference’s objectives are: (1) to encourage and develop empirical and experimental scholarship on legal issues by providing scholars with an opportunity to present and discuss their work with an interdisciplinary group of people interested in the empirical study of law; and (2) to stimulate ongoing conversations among scholars in law, economics, political science, demographics, finance, psychology, sociology, and other disciplines. The conference’s audience will include paper presenters, commentators, and other attendees, and will include many of the nation’s leading empirical legal scholars. The goal is productive discourse on both particular papers and appropriate methodologies. We especially encourage submissions from junior scholars.

See you there.
