The Empirical Legal Research Network (ELRN) serves as a nexus for those interested in empirical research and the study of law in society facilitates trans-disciplinary research collaboration on topics
relating to law in the real world and disseminates the results of such
research to the community within and beyond the University of Edinburgh. It also provides a resource of methodological skills and legal expertise
which can be drawn on by academics, policy-makers and practitioners and supports and encourages a range of specialist training and knowledge exchange activities.
