Institute for empirical legal studies

The Institute supports research and education on empirical legal studies. We organize teaching and develop the field at the University of Eastern Finland and nationally. We collaborate with various partners (authorities, organizations) and are ready to offer our expertise to development, evaluation and research projects in need of empirical legal analysis.

We offer support and guidance to students who utilize empirical methods in their studies. Students at the UEF Law School have the opportunity to study Empirical Legal Studies as a minor (25 credit points).

Leader of the Institute is dr. Outi Ratamäki. Other team members are Professor Anssi Keinänen, senior lecturer Ulla Väätänen and university lecturer Niko Vartiainen.
