that required law schools to report the highest LSAT score of an admitted student versus the prior practice of averaging.  Paul and Moneylaw blogger Tom Bell foresaw a likely surge in the number of repeat test-takers--but without any appreciable benefit.  Repeat score are, in fact, less accurate in predicting law school grades -- though, let's not kid ourselves, law schools are not looking at the LSAT anymore for predicting 1L performance.  It also costs a lot of time and money.  And if upper class white kids are better able to afford test preparation courses, it is likely to exacerbate the racial ...

of the very different kinds of work that now travel under this heading.  Undoubtedly, there has been interesting work done under the ELS rubric, and I have certainly learned from the work by the best scholars in the area (like my former colleagues Bernie Black and Frank Cross, and my current colleagues Anup Malani and Tom Miles), but overall, I know I'm not alone in thinking the empirical fetish has now gotten out of control:  there is now too much empirical work being done simply because it looks 'empirical.'    There seem to ... market research, surveys and trends

Almost all economists, and certainly most of the well-cited ones, are quantitative empiricists now (and really a particular kind of empiricist, now they don't do big regressions, they look for instruments or experiments) - that's up from circa zero empiricists 50 years ago.  Political science is a bit more heterogeneous, but APSR is almost exclusively the domain of quantitative empiricists, leading some in that field to observe , as Brian Leiter did yesterday re empirical legal studies , that the field is risking becoming arcane and narrow (here's Josh Wright and Professor Bainbridge on it too).  market research, surveys and trends

SURVEY RESULTS FOR
EMPIRICAL LEGAL STUDIES

Empirical Legal Studies: Regional Law Schools and Lawyer Income
I recently conducted a survey of billing and financial information for the Indiana State Bar Association (ISBA).  The results are going to be presented at an upcoming conference of solo and small firm lawyers. One of the most surprising findings was the lower incomes of small firm lawyers (i.e., five or fewer lawyers per firm) in large metropolitan areas versus  mid-sized and small and rural markets.  For example, in my sample of approximately 1,200 Indiana lawyers in private practices, lawyers working full-time in 1 to 5 lawyer firms in large metropolitan areas [see map below, click to enlarge] made an average of ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Two more GOPers say unemployment benefits encourage folks to stay unemployed
have gotten national attention for making the creative argument that we need to cut unemployment benefits because the current high benefit levels act as an incentive for the jobless to stay unemployed. Dems have been seizing on such comments to argue that the GOP is institutionally hostile to the jobless. Now Dems have unearthed two more examples of Republicans making a similar case: Ron Johnson, the Tea Party-backed Senate candidate challenging Russ Feingold in Wisconsin; and Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina. Here's Johnson, in an interview last month with Wisconsin Public Television: One of the economic advisors to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Empirical learning relies on prior knowledge of interactions in the world. For example, an empiricist would say that you know a ball will fall when you drop it because you have seen this behaviour before. Anything you learn from experience can be said to be empirical knowledge. Some philosophers (Des Cartes, for example) argued that certain parts of our knowledge are innate, including the ability to learn and use language (for example the way children begin to construct sentences using grammatical rules they have not been taught), a knowledge of maths and the knowledge of God.
