Duke Law School will sponsor and host the 11th Annual Conference on Empirical Legal Studies (CELS) on November 18-19, 2016. The conference will bring together scholars from law, economics, political science, psychology, policy analysis and other fields who are interested in the empirical analysis of law and legal institutions. The call for papers has passed.
Over one hundred papers and more than 30 posters on topics such as criminal law and policy, corporate governance, judicial decision-making, intellectual property and law and psychology, were selected through a peer review process and will be presented at the conference. Papers will be presented in panels, with assigned commenters for each paper, and opportunities for audience discussion.
