ELS Lab Meetings - Lunch & Learn: From Fact to Norm

Friday 7 May 2021

Topic Lunch & Learn

Lunch & Learns are informal, interactive sessions where we discuss a controversial statement relating to an ELS-themed topic. It is an opportunity to share your opinion and experiences with regard to doing empirical legal research and to learn from peers.

This Lunch & Learn will be on the topic of “From Fact to Norm”, with the following statement: 

"Findings from empirical research can(not) be translated into legal norms."

Lisa Ansems will tell us about her experiences with bridging the gap between empirical facts and legal norms in her research in Criminal Law, after which there will be room for an informal discussion on our own experiences and questions on how to bridge the gap.

Join us for this informal session; everyone is welcome to share their opinions, no matter your level of expertise. Interested to join? Sign up via the following form and you will receive a link to the Lunch & Learn: https://cutt.ly/gzedAG9.
