Conference of the Dutch Platform for Empirical Legal Studies (ELS) for starting ELS researchers

08 December 2020

5 February 2021
Online 10:30-17:00 (including breaks)

Are you curious about what researchers are doing at other universities? Are you looking to learn more about the importance of empirical research for law? Utrecht University and Leiden University cordially invite you to the very first online conference for starting ELS researchers. The conference serves as a platform to bring young, enthusiastic and driven ELS scholars together in a research community, enabling discussions and providing networking opportunities.

This event will deal with creating a sound research design by addressing the different ways in which researchers may connect research goals, research questions, and empirical research methods. We will use breakout rooms to allow participants to discuss various research designs that can appropriately deal with current societal and academic questions. The day will also feature plenary presentations by young researchers who have used a combination of research methods in order to answer their research questions, including qualitative, survey and experimental research. During the day, there will be ample opportunity to connect with other researchers and we will close the day on a fun note!
