For those of you who attended the helpful Empirical Legal Scholarship Workshop geared for beginners or who want more advanced information on doing empirical work, I pleased to make the following announcement:
On Friday, February 9, 2007 through Sunday, February 11, 2007 Lee Epstein and Andrew Martin will be conducting an Advanced Conducting Empirical Legal Scholarship workshop. This workshop will be held in St. Louis, and is co-sponsored by Washington University and Northwestern University. There is more information available about the workshop here: http://cerl.wustl.edu. The workshop is designed for those who have some experience with empirical legal research, and an understanding of elementary statistics (at the level taught in the introductory workshop). Topics to be covered will include: multiple regression, regression models for limited dependent variables, presenting results from non-linear models, data visualization and graphics, and matching methods for causal inference. All logistical details will be available in mid-October. In the interim, please feel free to contact Andrew Martin (firstname.lastname@example.org) with substantive questions, or Karma Jenkins (email@example.com) with logistical questions.
