The Conference on Empirical Legal Studies (CELS)
CELS brings together scholars from law, economics, political science, psychology, policy analysis, and other fields who are interested in the empirical analysis of law and legal institutions. CELS presents papers that engage empirical and experimental scholarship on legal issues spanning all areas of empirical legal studies. Papers are selected through a peer review process for presentation at the conference. Papers are presented in panels, with assigned commenters for each paper, and opportunities for audience discussion. CELS is co-sponsored by University of Toronto Faculty of Law and the Society for Empirical Legal Studies (SELS).
