Quantlaw Call for Papers

Call for Papers and Invitation

For this third-annual event, February 12-13, 2016 the University of Arizona College of Law announces a workshop on any data-oriented topic (whether empirical or legal), but especially for the theme:

The Empirical Constitution 

The theme is broadly defined to include any empirical/experimental study of issues relevant to constitutional law or procedure, as well as non-empirical studies of constitutional doctrine relevant to data and public access thereto. The program will include works-in-progress sessions for extensive feedback, as well as methods sessions focusing on datasets and analytical tools. 
 
The meeting will feature visiting scholars:
  • Saul Levmore (University of Chicago)
  • Dan Klerman (University of Southern California), 
  • David Burnham and Sue Long (Syracuse and TRACFed), 
  • And participating Arizona faculty including Jane Bambauer, Kathie Barnes, Carol Rose, Christopher Robertson, Jason Kreag, Roy Spece, Sergio Puig, James Hopkins, and Marc Miller.
Travel stipends available for junior scholars (those not yet in tenure-track positions, or within five years of appointment). Attach your CV & paper (very rough draft is OK) by January 6, 2016 to chris.robertson@law.arizona.edu

Others are welcome to attend and participate as well, with the possibility of presenting a paper on a space-available basis (just email to register).
