Statistical Inference in Law

Drawing an inference from quantitative evidence lies at the heart of many legal and policy decisions. This course provides the tools, concepts, and framework for lawyers to become sophisticated consumers of quantitative evidence and social science. Unlike traditional statistics courses, it will be taught using substantive case law as a springboard for considering quantitative evidence. No background, beyond high school algebra, is assumed, but students are required to learn basic statistical programming. Elements Used in Grading: Class participation, attendance, problem sets. Attendance is required to retain a seat in class.
