Statistics + Law =
Having devoted many hours of late to an article that I hope to have published in a law review, I am reminded of a friend of mine who’s already managed this feat. More than once.
Her most recent article – on judicial tests for disparate-impact discrimination – can be found in the Indiana Law Journal. Prior to that, she’d done an empirical study regarding the impact of gender composition on the outcome of federal sexual harassment & sex-discrimination cases at the appellate level. (If the latter sounds vaguely familiar, that’s probably because it was mentioned earlier this year in the New York Times, its Economix Blog, and (more obliquely) in the WSJ, back when Sotamayor was making headlines.)
If you’re at all interested in what happens when you a legal background with competence in statistics, you may want to take a look.
