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.
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.

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”).
