HLS Administrative Updates 2014-01-06

The SJD Empirical Legal Studies group is hosting Professor Ted Eisenberg from Cornell, one of the nation’s leading empirical legal scholars, for a unique two-day workshop on how to conduct empirical research in law. The workshop will cover basic statistic methods and apply them to questions like how to run quantitative analysis of judicial decisions and jury awards, how to explore the relationship between punitive and compensatory damage awards in civil litigation, and more. Prior statistical knowledge and/or experience in empirical research is an advantage, but not a perquisite. All students are invited to apply! Interested students should submit a resume and a brief (not more than one page) statement of interest, explaining why they want to participate and whether they intend to pursue empirical research in their future work, to the Netta Barak-Corren at nbarakcorren at sjd.law.harvard.edu. Applications are due January 20, 2014.
