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 discuss the vignette study methodology as performed by Shosha Wiznitzer in her book "Defensieve dokters? Een juridisch-empirisch onderzoek naar de invloed van het medisch aansprakelijkheidsrecht op het professionele handelen van zorgverleners". As part of her dissertation, Shosha conducted legal-empirical research on the behaviour of healthcare providers, in the light of medical liability law. Gaining inspiration from the vignette studies used by Shosha, we discuss the method and its (possible) applications in different fields of law.

Paper: Shosha N.P. Wiznitzer (2021) Defensieve dokters? Een juridisch-empirisch onderzoek naar de invloed van het medisch aansprakelijkheidsrecht op het professionele handelen van zorgverleners (Boomjuridisch, ISBN: 9789462909571)

ELS Lab Meetings

The Empirical Legal Studies Lab @Leiden organizes sessions for researchers interested in empirical legal research. Are you looking to learn more about empirical methods and/or engage in lively discussions on ELS? Join the ELS lab meetings!

Ranging from the informal Lunch & Learn to more in-depth paper discussions, the ELS lab meetings cover a wide range of empirical research methods and ELS-related topics. We offer a possibility to learn about each other’s research and experience, test out ideas and receive feedback on work in progress. You’re welcome to join, regardless of your degree of experience with ELS. We will start a new series in the second semester of the academic year. Stay tuned!
