On March 30-31, 2015 the Wolf Law Library will host a conference that looks beyond the basics of managing law repositories. The conference is an opportunity for Law School Repository Administrators to gather information and communicate with other professionals about advanced topics relating to open access repositories. It will address issues such as:
Society of Empirical Legal Studies and the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law
The annual Conference on Empirical Legal Studies (CELS) was initially launched in 2006, in response to the growing level of interest and expertise in the empirical study of law in law schools as well as other disciplinary fields. Due to the significant breadth and reach of empirical approaches across fields, CELS has quickly become one of the premiere conferences in law and social sciences. Each year, CELS attracts upwards of 350 researchers from around the globe and across dozens of disciplines. Prior host sites have been the University of Texas (2006), NYU (2007), Cornell (2008), USC (2009), Yale (2010), Northwestern (2011), Stanford (2012), and Penn (2013). In 2014, UC Berkeley is pleased to be hosting the event.
