Call for Papers: Evidence Based Law and Practice

The University of Newcastle Australia Law School presents a symposium, Evidence Based Law and Practice,  May 22, 2017.

Being evidence-based means that law-and policy-making, and professional practices, are grounded in rigorous evidence of what is effective in achieving desired outcomes. The evidence-based movement in law is concerned with improving research and evaluation in all legal sectors, including legal education, legal practice, law-making and judging.

Papers are sought that critically explore the concept of evidence-based law and practice: what does it mean; how do we do it; why should we do it?

Send abstracts to Briony Johnston at briony.johnston@newcastle.edu.au by February 17, 2017.
