Empirical Research Support

Advancing research at the nexus of data science and law.

The Law Library serves the empirical research needs of the Duke Law community. We work with faculty, students, staff, clinicians, librarians, and administrators to create data-driven deliverables that inform, intrigue, and inspire. We promote transparent research and data management practices and open access to our work and the work of those we serve.  We also consider it a pedagogical imperative to ensure that those we serve can critically engage with claims predicated upon the use—and misuse—of data.

To learn more about empirical legal research or to seek assistance with a specific empirical research project, please contact Alex Jakubow, Ph.D., Associate Director for Empirical Research and Data services at jakubow@law.duke.edu.
