Empirical research and criminal law: a good experience






Today I participated at:
Some Lessons of Empirical Research and the Long March to China
at the
Washing
ton College of Law, Washington DC, U.S.A.

This Lecture reviews what has been learned about the values and challenges of empirical research undertaken over the past thirty years based upon studies carried out in the general area of criminal justice including the rights of suspects, police interrogation and plea bargaining. The Lecture includes an account of attempts to undertake empirical research on criminal justice in China and some of the lessons learned.
The speaker was Dean Mike McConville from Chinese University of Hong Kong Faculty of Law.
It was an interesting talk from a leading scholar in the field of empirical research and criminal law.
