Professor James Greiner will address some considerations regarding the use of randomized experiments to uncover causal relationships on legal studies.  The talk will include a brief discussion of online and lab experiments before addressing in greater detail the ethics, operationalization, and usefulness of randomized field experiments.

The Harvard Empirical Legal Studies (HELS) series explores a range of empirical methods, both qualitative and quantitative, and their application in legal scholarship in different areas of the law. It is a platform for engaging with current empirical research, hearing from leading scholars working in a variety of fields, and developing empirical projects.

The group is open to all interested students and scholars. No prior background in empirical legal research is necessary. Please RSVP to echachko@sjd.law.harvard.edu.
