The University of Edinburgh’s Empirical Legal Research Network (ELRN) serves as a nexus for those interested in empirical research and the study of law in society.
This Empirical Legal Research Festival, taking place on Tuesday 24th April from 4.00pm-7.00pm in the Project Room (50 George Square), will comprise two parts:
Part 1. The first part, roughly from 4.00pm-5.30pm, will consist of an informal meet-and-greet to get to know members of the University community who share an interest in empirical legal research.
During this time, we also encourage people to do PechaKucha presentations (i.e. 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each) to present their empirical legal research in a lively and engaging format.
If you are interested in doing a PechaKucha presentation, please send an email with your proposed topic to Ted Dove: Edward.Dove@ed.ac.uk.
Part 2. This informal meet-and-greet/presentation activity will then be followed by an inaugural ELRN Annual Lecture. We are delighted that Professor Reza Banakar, Chair in Legal Sociology at Lund University (click here), will share his reflections on empirical legal research. His lecture will be followed by a Question & Answer.
Wine and canapés will be available throughout the duration of the Festival.
