Empirical legal questions are increasingly pressing for society and academics alike. Covering the law in action, victims, governmental accountability, police investigation, reporting and so on, the study of these questions is at the core of a blossoming field of academic endeavour in the US. But until now Europe has lagged behind. Law students here generally receive little training in empirical methods, and most social scientists are unversed in law.
