Worth Noting: Empirical Legal Studies Blog

The Empirical Legal Studies blog is a collaborative project
produced by Professor Jason Czarnezki of the Vermont Law
School, Professors Michael Heise and Theodore Eisenberg of
the Cornell Law School, and William Ford of the John Marshall
Law School.

The ELS blog serves as an online forum to discuss and provide
links for emerging empirical legal scholarship, provide conference
updates, discuss empirical claims that have emerged in public and
political discourse, facilitate discussion for guest empirical scholars
and assess current empirical findings and methodologies.
