"The experience of attending the Summer Course was transformative for my academic development,” said Carina de Castro Quirino, a professor from Brazil. “There were very interesting debates and innovative ideas. The interaction of professors from the University of Chicago Law School and scholars from around the world provided an essential space for … the critical development of law and economics."
When the Law School’s scholars tap into massive data sets to answer pressing legal questions, they often draw support from the Coase-Sandor Institute of Law and Economics, an academic hub and research lab staffed by a small team of analysts trained to clean, organize, and synthesize data.
It’s a behind-the-scenes ingredient designed for Law School faculty whose cutting-edge scholarship includes time-consuming empirical work—and it is a resource John Rappaport, Professor of Law and Ludwig and Hilde Wolf Research Scholar, calls “significant.”
