Call For Papers: Conference on Empirical Legal Studies–Europe 2020 Empirical Legal Studies



Event Date: 

06/11/20 to 06/12/20

Location name: 

Oslo, Norway

Evidencing the growing internationalization of empirical legal studies, the 3rd Conference on Empirical Legal Studies in Europe (CELSE) will be held at the University of Oslo, 11-12 June 2020.

"CELSE is an interdisciplinary gathering that draws researchers from across Europe and the world, bringing together scholars in law, economics, political science, psychology, policy analysis, and other fields who are interested in the empirical analysis of law and legal institutions. CELSE will consider empirical papers across all areas of law, although priority will be given to papers with a European focus. Empirical analysis is understood to encompass any systematic approach to quantitative or qualitative data analysis, including statistical analysis, machine learning, experiments, text-mining and network analysis techniques.

Papers are selected through a peer review process, and discussion at the conference includes assigned commentators and audience questions. Authors are encouraged to submit works-in-progress; however, submissions should be completed drafts that include principal results. Submitted papers must be unpublished (and expected to be unpublished at the time of the conference). If accepted, authors will have an opportunity to submit a revised draft prior to the conference for presentation and discussion. Please note that accepted papers will be made available to all conference participants."

The deadline for submissions is 15 February 2020. Anyone with additional questions or seeking further information should click here.
