12th Annual Conference on Empirical Legal Studies
Call For Papers - Deadline Extended

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Please note that we have extended the paper submission deadline to Wednesday, June 28, 2017 (midnight, Eastern Time).

Cornell Law School and the Society for Empirical Legal Studies (SELS) are pleased to announce the 12th Annual Conference on Empirical Legal Studies (CELS) on October 13-14, 2017, in Ithaca, New York.

OVERVIEW: CELS is a highly regarded interdisciplinary gathering that draws researchers from across the United States and the world, bringing together scholars in law, economics, political science, psychology, policy analysis, and other fields who are interested in the empirical analysis of law and legal institutions. Papers are selected through a peer review process. Discussion at the conference includes assigned commentators and audience questions.

CELS will consider empirical papers spanning all areas of empirical legal studies. Authors are encouraged to submit works-in-progress; however, submissions should be completed drafts that include principal results. Submitted papers must be unpublished (and expected to be unpublished at the time of the conference). If accepted, authors will have an opportunity to submit a revised draft prior to the conference for presentation and discussion. Please note that accepted papers will be made available to all conference participants.
