This course provides an introduction to quantitative concepts and methods that are increasingly important for lawyers. We will explore these concepts through application to contexts such as election fraud, employment discrimination, jury selection, criminal law, and antitrust. The goal of the course is to provide students with the skills necessary to engage in quantitative reasoning and to become savvy consumers of quantitative evidence. This course does not require any background in mathematics, economics, or statistics.
