Empirical Legal Studies

ELS Academy

ELS@Leiden is part of nation-wide network of law schools organizing events and pooling resources to be at the service of individual scholars and research groups at law schools in the Netherlands.

Leiden University is one of five universities nationally that have Empirical Legal Studies as a focus within the context of the Law Sector Plan. The project Empirical Legal Studies is a national collaboration between Leiden University (coordinator), Erasmus University Rotterdam, University of Groningen, Utrecht University, and VU Amsterdam. 

Embodying this national collaboration is the Netherlands Academy for Empirical Legal Studies. Founded at the end of 2021, the ELS Academy envisions to be a national research school that brings together, educates, and supports (aspiring) empirical legal scholars who are interested in empirically exploring questions that are legally relevant.
