The Supreme Court compendium : data, decisions, and developments by Lee Epstein( Book )

38 editions published between 1993 and 2015 in English and held by 3,071 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

REF Vast amounts of statistical analysis of the work of the Supreme Court are here organized into a single-volume reference that will appeal to court scholars, journalists, students, librarians, lawyers, and historians. Through the extensive use of tables, the authors document the activity and composition of the court from the Constitutional Convention in 1787 to the appointment of Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 1993. These tables appear within chapters that provide the organizational structure for the data. The first three chapters focus on the history of the court and its important decisions. The next three provide information on individual justices, including details about their lives, schooling, and voting and opinion-writing records. The remaining chapters plot public perception of the court and its impact on policy. A scholarly discussion of the scope and sources of the data is included, as are bibliographies for each chapter. An excellent tool for answering quick, factual questions, this book is essential for anyone studying the court in depth. Highly recommended.

Advice and consent : the politics of judicial appointments by Lee Epstein( )

13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book describes how presidents and the Senate have tried to remake the bench, ranging from FDR's controversial "court packing" scheme to the Senate's creation in 1978 of 35 new appellate and 117 district court judgeships, allowing the Democrats to shape the judiciary for years. The authors conclude with a look at whether presidents succeed in their efforts to appoint judges who will carry their philosophies into the next generation."--Jacket

The Supreme Court and legal change : abortion and the death penalty by Lee Epstein( )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 1,863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors analyze abortion and death penalty decisions by the Supreme Court and argue that they provide prime examples of abrupt legal change. After proposing that the strength of legal arguments has at least as much impact on Court decisions as do public opinion and justices' political beliefs, they focus on the way litigators propel certain issues onto the Court's agenda and seek to persuade the justices to affect legal change

The behavior of federal judges : a theoretical and empirical study of rational choice by Lee Epstein( )

12 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Judges play a central role in the American legal system, but their behavior as decision-makers is not well-understood, even among themselves. The system permits judges to be quite secretive (and most of them are), so indirect methods are required to make sense of their behavior. Here, a political scientist, an economist, and a judge work together to construct a unified theory of judicial decision-making. Using statistical methods to test hypotheses, they dispel the mystery of how judicial decisions in district courts, circuit courts, and the Supreme Court are made"--Provided by publisher

An introduction to empirical legal research by Lee Epstein( Book )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is the death penalty a more effective deterrent than lengthy prison sentences? Does a judge's gender influence their decisions? Do independent judiciaries promote economic freedom? Answering such questions requires empirical evidence, and arguments based on empirical research have become an everyday part of legal practice, scholarship, and teaching. In litigation judges are confronted with empirical evidence in cases ranging from bankruptcy and taxation to criminal law and environmental infringement. In academia researchers are increasingly turning to sophisticated empirical methods to assess and challenge fundamental assumptions about the law. As empirical methods impact on traditional legal scholarship and practice, new forms of education are needed for today's lawyers. All lawyers asked to present or assess empirical arguments need to understand the fundamental principles of social science methodology that underpin sound empirical research. An Introduction to Empirical Legal Research introduces that methodology in a legal context, explaining how empirical analysis can inform legal arguments; how lawyers can set about framing empirical questions, conducting empirical research, analyzing data, and presenting or evaluating the results. The fundamentals of understanding quantitative and qualitative data, statistical models, and the structure of empirical arguments are explained in a way accessible to lawyers with or without formal training in statistics. Written by two of the world's leading experts in empirical legal analysis, drawing on years of experience in training lawyers in empirical methods, An Introduction to Empirical Legal Research will be an invaluable primer for all students, academics, or practicing lawyers coming to empirical research - whether they are embarking themselves on an empirical research project, or engaging with empirical arguments in their field of study, research, or practice
