Empirical Training Workshop

Thursday, October 29, 2015

9:00 am – 5:00 pm

This workshop, conducted by Professors Michael Heise, Martin Wells, and Dawn Chutkow, is intended for professors and students who seek an introduction to the statistical and programming skills needed to conduct quantitative empirical legal research. No prior training in statistics or in statistical programming is required or assumed. It is expected that Stata Corp. will provide, at no cost to workshop participants, a temporary license for the Stata statistical program.

For those interested in helpful background reading, we suggest Alan C. Acock, A Gentle Introduction to Stata (Revised Third Edition 2012 or Revised Fourth Edition 2014).

The workshop is an optional event—please note that it takes place the day BEFORE the CELS conference starts. The workshop will be held at the law school.

The workshop requires advance registration and a registration fee of $100 in addition to CELS 2015 registration. Attendees must also become SELS members if they are not already, which is required as part of registering for the conference. Registration for the workshop is not yet open.

For additional information please contact Dawn Chutkow.

Advance Registration Required, Limited Enrollment.
