I am delighted to note that Stanford Law Review's current issue (65:6) focuses exclusively on empirical legal studies. The issue features essays from six Stanford faculty members who used papers presented at last year's CELS (hosted by Stanford Law School) as a starting point to discuss the state of empirical work in an array of substantive legal sub-fields. The introductory essay, The Empirical Revolution in Law, by Prof. Dan Ho (Stanford) and Stanford Law's former Dean, Larry Kramer, provides a nice frame and overview. I recommend the entire issue to all.
I should also note that the 2013 CELS, hosted by Penn Law School, is scheduled for October 25-26, 2013. Those hoping to present papers or posters need to submit by no later than midnight (EST) on Friday, July 12, 2013.
