Empirical Legal Studies
An empirical examination of consumer law
This project aims to answer legally relevant questions in the field of consumer law by means of empirical research.
The research line focuses on the assumptions underlying consumer law, consumer law in action and the effects of consumer law in practice. What are the legal difficulties in (online) consumer protection and how should these be dealt with, viewed from an empirical legal perspective? Part of this research line is the creation of an edited volume on Empirics & Consumer Law.
