I’m really looking forward to next week’s 7th Annual Conference on Empirical Legal Studies, to be held at Stanford. Here’s the preliminary program. As usual, I’ll blog the conference after the fact. If there are particular papers you want to make sure I get to and highlight, drop me a line. As a taste, here’s a line from an abstract that made me very curious about the presentation to follow: “Our overall estimates suggest that pornography caused between 10 and 25 percent of all divorces in the United States in the sixties and seventies.” Caused?! That must be some kicker of an instrumental variable.
