Organized by Yun-chien Chang (Academia Sinica), CELSA, scheduled for June 13 - 15, 2017, at Academia Sinica in Taipei, Taiwan, will include up to seven panels with up to 5 parallel sessions. One of the parallel sessions will be reserved for papers using Asian data. The paper submission deadline has been extended until: 24 February 2017, 11:59pm ET.
An overview of the conference follows: "Empirical legal studies are well established in the United States and are now part of the academic mainstream. In Asia, as compared to other "law and" disciplines, empirical legal studies appear to rise faster and spread wider. For legal empiricists, it is not enough. Both legal academia and policy-makers would benefit from a deeper understanding of the law in action as well as behaviors of courts, legislators, regulated parties, etc. Hosted by Academia Sinica in Taiwan and sponsored by the Society for Empirical Legal Studies (SELS), the first Conference on Empirical Legal Studies in Asia (CELSA) brings together academics from law and other fields who embrace the empirical turn and seek to develop empirical accounts of law and legal institutions in Asia."
