Law on the Market – Presentation at Depaul University College of Law

Starting my fall road show across Chicago Area law schools, today I gave the faculty lunch seminar at Depaul University College of Law.  I presented our paper on Judicial Decision Making and Stock Market Movements.  Thanks to the good folks at Depaul for your thoughtful comments on the paper.

University of Chicago – Workshop on Judicial Behavior: Dan Katz on Court Decisions and Stock Prices

On behalf of my co-authors — next month —  I will be presenting at the University of Chicago – Workshop on Judicial Behavior – Organized by Lee Epstein, Frank Easterbrook, Dennis Hutchinson, William Landes and Richard Posner.   I think we have a very appropriate UChicago styled paper on Judicial Decision Making and Stock Market Movements.

Econometrics (hereinafter Causal Inference) versus Machine Learning

Perhaps some hyperbolic language in here but the basic idea is still intact … for law+economics / empirical legal studies – the causal inference versus machine learning point is expressed in detail in this paper called “Quantitative Legal Prediction.”  Mike Bommarito and I have made this point in these slides, these slides, these slides, etc.   Mike and I also make this point on Day 1 of our Legal Analytics Class (which really could be called  “machine learning for lawyers”).
