The inaugural Empirical Legal Studies Conference to be held at the University of Texas School of Law on October 27-28, 2006 has issued a call for papers in a variety of fields, including tax. The Conference is jointly organized by Cornell (Theodore Eisenberg & Michael Heise), NYU (Jennifer Arlen & Geoffrey Miller), and Texas (Bernard Black).
Conference Objectives: The conference's goals are: (i) to encourage and develop empirical and experimental scholarship on legal issues by providing scholars with an opportunity to present and discuss their work with an interdisciplinary group of scholars; and (ii) to stimulate ongoing conversations among scholars in law, economics, political science, finance, psychology, sociology, and other disciplines about research in this area. The conference’s audience will include paper presenters, commentators, and other attendees, and will include many of the nation’s leading empirical legal scholars. The goal is productive discourse on both particular papers and appropriate methodologies.
