CELS 2013

Empirical Training Workshop

October 24, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm & October 25, 9:00 am - 12:30 pm


This workshop, conducted by Professor Theodore Eisenberg, is intended for professors and students who seek an introduction to the statistical and programming skills needed to conduct quantitative empirical legal research.  No prior training in statistics or in statistical programming is required or assumed. It is expected that Stata Corp. will provide, at no cost to workshop participants, a temporary license for the Stata statistical program. 

Reading assignments will be from Alan C. Acock, A Gentle Introduction to Stata (Revised Third Edition 2012), which is available from the Stata bookstore online.

The workshop is an optional event - please note that it begins the day BEFORE the CELS conference starts. Both sessions will be held at the University of Pennsylvania Law School.  The schedule is designed to finish in time for participants to attend the conference’s paper panels.

The workshop requires advance registration and a registration fee of $100 in addition to CELS 2013 registration. Attendees must also become SELS members if they are not already, which is required as part of registering for the conference.

For additional information please contact either Theodore Eisenberg (te13@cornell.edu) or Dawn Chutkow (dmc66@cornell.edu). 


Advance Registration Required, Limited Enrollment. Register through Conference Maker.
