Dear members and those taking an interest in VSR activities,
On the 18the of June the VSR is organizing a seminar titled ‘The Fact/Value Distinction in Empirical-Legal Research and Young Researchers Present’.
After the keynote address on the fact value distinction we will be discussing doing research and the various methodological and substantive problems that may occur such as the relationship between empirical finding an legal practices. Various young researchers will present and will share with us their results. They will obtain feedback from senior researchers and professors who have already earned their stripes. The day promises to be interesting and fruitful with clear ideas and insights.
Below you may find the program, containing a varied mix of subjects, researchers and an interesting keynote. We already look forward to all the contributions and discussions on the 18th.
