Duke Law Journal Conference on Measuring Judges and Justice

February 06, 2009 • 8:00 AM • Law School 3041

Over the last 25 years, political scientists, economists, and legal scholars have created a large body of empirical work that focused on judicial decisionmaking. Most judges are either unaware of this literature or deem it badly mistaken, but others view it as a new tool for understanding how judges judge. This conference brings together judges and those who study them to discuss challenges in the field. For more information, contact Jonathan Williams at jonathan.williams@law.duke.edu.
