Professor Holger Spamann (HLS) will provide an overview of the broad range of legal questions that benefit from empirical studies, and the very different types of empirical work used to address these questions. He will then discuss an example of how not to do it. He will emphasize the importance of common sense for empirical studies.

Lunch will be served.

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.
