Public Health Law Research Workshop: Using Empirical Methods to Measure Law

ASLME is pleased to announce a new program that will take place on Thursday, June 9, 2011 at Loyola University Chicago School of Law, prior to the start of the 34th Annual Health Law Professors Conference. The Public Health Law Research Workshop: Using Empirical Methods to Measure Law, Special Workshop will be presented by Scott Burris & Evan Anderson, Temple University School of Law. 

This workshop, conducted by the National Program Office (NPO) of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Public Health Law Research Program (PHLR), introduces law professors to foundational principles and techniques for empirically evaluating the relationship between law and health.  The workshop will offer a scientific approach to collecting and coding legal data. It will review scientific methods, best practices in empirical legal studies, and practical skills for conducting public health law research. Participants will learn to build and use a computer-assisted system to create, code and analyze a legal dataset for analysis. The presentations will be accessible to both experienced researchers and scholars in health law without formal training in research design or statistics.  A final session will explore the emerging field of PHLR with emphasis on practical issues like establishing interdisciplinary collaborative teams, pursuing funding opportunities, and identifying emerging areas of study.

Program Schedule:

Part 1. 12 – 12:30: Law and The Scientific Method                       

Part 2. 12:30 – 1:30: Formulating a Research, Collecting the Law, Designing a Protocol
