Call for Papers: Empirical Legal Studies

April 13, 2016 at 6:50 pm Leave a comment


The Eleventh Annual Conference on Empirical Legal Studies (CELS 2016) is sponsored and hosted by Duke Law School and will take place November 18-19, 2016 at Duke Law School. 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. Papers are selected through a peer review process and 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 Submitted papers must be unpublished (and expected to be unpublished at the time of the conference).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.  Note that accepted papers will be made available to all conference participants.


To submit a paper, go to the CELS 2016 Conference page on SSRN. (Do not go through the regular SSRN paper submission system.) There is no charge for submissions. All submissions will be peer-reviewed.  The submission deadline is July 10, 2016.
