The Empirical Legal Research Network (ELRN) serves as a nexus for those interested in empirical research and the study of law in society. As a knowledge hub situated in Edinburgh Law School, the ELRN facilitates learning and teaching in empirical legal research and trans-disciplinary research collaboration on topics relating to law in the real world. Through events scheduled throughout the academic year, the ELRN disseminates knowledge and the results of its members’ research to the community within and beyond the University of Edinburgh.
The Empirical Legal Research Network was established in February 2009 and was convened by Professor Lesley McAra.
ELRN membership is open to anyone in the University of Edinburgh with an interest in empirical research that touches on law, regulation and the legal process.
