The 10th Annual Conference on Empirical Legal Studies (CELS) 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.
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.
CELS is sponsored by the Society for Empirical Legal Studies (SELS) and hosted by Washington University School of Law, the Center for Empirical Research in the Law, and Washington University Olin School of Business.
The conference will open with plenary sessions on network analysis and data visualization. The Keynote Address will be given by Richard K. Wilson, PhD, Alan A. and Edith L. Wolff Distinguished Professor of Medicine, and Director of the McDonnell Genome Institute at Washington University in St. Louis.
