Empirical Legal Studies

ELS@Leiden provides a platform that brings together legal scholars and social scientists to collaboratively explore legally relevant questions related to market regulation.

Our purpose is to shape and strengthen expertise on law and behavior in a market context. Using both quantitative and qualitative methods, we do research on law in action and underlying assumptions of legal rules. Our empirical studies collectively aim to uncover how regulations and legislation can shape markets in fair and just ways.

Empirical Legal Studies is one of the legal science themes of the Leiden Law School as part of the Law Sector Plan, the other being Institutions for Conflict Resolution. The Empirical Legal Studies project receives funding from the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW) through the multi-year Law Sector Plan.
