The annual Conferences on Empirical Legal Studies (CELS) were launched in 2006, in response to the growing level of empirical scholarship in law schools and elsewhere. It has thus far been held at University of Texas (2006), NYU (2007), Cornell (2008), USC (2009), Yale (2010), Northwestern (2011), and Stanford (2012), Penn (2013), UC Berkeley (2014), Washington University School of Law in St. Louis (2015), and is scheduled for Duke University Law School (2016) in each case with generous support from the host school.
The founding organizers of CELS are Bernie Black (Northwestern), Jennifer Arlen and Geoffrey Miller (NYU), and Ted Eisenberg and Michael Heise (Cornell).
