Amsterdam Center for Law & Economics

ACLE Empirical Legal Studies Workshop

22May2013 10:00 - 13:00


Law Inside the Lab: Experimental techniques for the study of the law Location: Faculty of Economics and Business, Roetersstraat 11, room E0.09 (from 10.00-12.00) Faculty of Economics and Business, Nieuwe Prinsengracht 130, room G2.34 (from 12.00-13.00)

This workshop has two purposes. First, it provides a short introduction in which we will outline what types of research questions can be addressed with laboratory experiments. We will give a short lecture on the advantages and limitations of laboratory experiments, including a discussion on the external validity. We will discuss the extent to which laboratory experiments can provide useful information to situations outside the laboratory (external validity). Second, we will visit the experimental economics laboratory to make researchers acquainted with some of the procedures used in experiments. This will be a helpful experience for researchers who plan to use results from the experimental literature for their research of who are thinking about running an experiment, and hence may find it important to have a first-hand impression on how this type of research is done in practice. The workshop will be held by Jeroen van de Ven.
