About This Product

This valuable resource was compiled by the American Bar Foundation (ABF). Established in 1952, the American Bar Foundation is an independent, nonprofit national research institute committed to objective empirical research on law and legal institutions. Their program of sociolegal research is conducted by an interdisciplinary staff of Research Fellows trained in such diverse fields as law, sociology, psychology, political science, economics, history, and anthropology.

Now, for the first time, the ABF presents a collection of the finest, most important articles from ABF scholars spanning the last two decades. Featuring such noted authorities as Steven D. Levitt, co-author of the best-seller Freakonomics, readers will be fascinated with the wealth and depth of information contained in this volume. Presenting the best of empirical law research, this scholarly book presents information on such topics as, neighborhoods and violent crime; detecting discrimination; reconsidering the concept of white-collar crime; the transformation of the urban law practice; law, medicine and family in neonatal care; the behavior of the non-unanimous civil jury; and much more.

Since its founding in 1952, the American Bar Foundation has become the preeminent provider of empirical research fundamental to legal institutions and legal processes. It has achieved this preeminence by supporting independent research that combines the best tools of social science analysis with a variety of intellectual perspectives associated with disciplines ranging from law, economics, political science and history to sociology, psychology and anthropology. Today, ABF Research Fellows are among the leading scholars in all of these disciplines.

While it is essential that the Foundation draw on the talents of leading scholars in their fields, it is equally important that these scholars use their talents to understand legal phenomena as they affect real people and events. The Foundation's projects repeatedly produce findings of specific relevance to the legal profession and of more general importance to our society.
