ELS Lab Meetings - Journal Club: The Role of Empirical Data in Different Domains of Law

Friday 28 May 2021

Topic Journal Club

Journal Clubs are sessions in which we discuss empirical legal articles, focusing on the methodology used in the paper and the lessons that can be learned.

In this Journal Club, we will explore the role of empirical data in different domains of law. We will start with a short introduction based on a paper on integrating models of consumer decision-making and cognitive psychology in Trademark Law, after which there will be ample room for discussing the (potential) role of empirical data in different domains of law. The following paper will be discussed: 

Burrell, R. & Weatherall, K. (2018). Towards a New Relationship Between Trademark Law and Psychology, Current Legal Problems, 771, 87-118.
