At the Illinois College of Law, Tom Ulen, Jennifer Robbennolt, and Bob Lawless are co-teaching a new course on empirical methods for lawyers. On the Law & Economics Blog, Tom has posted the course syllabus, which impressed me as very comprehensive. They are looking for feedback from ELS types, so I encourage readers to check it out.
I know that John Donahue at Yale, Rick Sander at UCLA, and Michael Heise at Cornell (and formerly while at Case) have all taught law school quantitative and/or empirical methods course that were very popular with students. Obviously, this is a trend. To build more momentum, I hope Tom (at L&E) and Bob (at Credit Slips) will post a summary of the semester.
