Empirical Methods in Legal Research

25 September 2020

The Empirical Methods in Legal Research sessions aim to equip you to add an empirical component to your work. They provide an opportunity to expand your research skillset and to reflect on the role that empirical methods can play in conducting legal research.

These sessions are being organised under the responsibility of Miranda Boone and Helen Pluut to implement the Dutch Law Sector Plan in Leiden. The individual invitation for each session indicates whether the working language is English or Dutch.
