Empirical Criminal Law
This seminar will discuss the leading empirical research on a breadth of topics in criminal law. No prior background in economics or statistics is necessary. We will evaluate empirical papers on topics such as the determinants of crime, policing, prosecution, trial, sentencing, and the effects of punishment on longer-term outcomes. Grading will be based on two response papers, class participation, and a research proposal for an empirical project on criminal law.
