The empirical turn in legal scholarship has intensified with the integration of a new quantitative and computational methods. In our second annual workshop on law and social science methods, we call for papers on two increasingly popular approaches: network science and machine learning. We are especially interested in papers that seek to deepen the understanding of these methods or apply them to doctrinal or interdisciplinary questions in areas such as criminology, international law, corporate Law and sustainable development.

The Keynote Speaker for the workshop is Dan Katz, Illinois Tech - Chicago Kent College of Law, who has been a pioneer in the use of both methods in understanding and predicting the behaviour of the US Supreme Court and advancing the field of legal technology.

Abstracts of approximately 200 words should be submitted to Martin Nøkleberg and Hanna Ahlström by:

22 August 2018.

Acceptance of papers will be notified by 1 September 2018.

Papers should be submitted by 24 September 2018.

Workshop 10-11 October 2018

We can support some travel expenses upon application. There will be no conference fee.

Do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions, and feel free to distribute the call.
