Recognized as a trailblazer in legal education and training, UCLA Law created the Empirical Research Group (ERG) in the 1990s. ERG focuses on designing and implementing quantitative research in public policy and law.

Faculty members associated with the methodology-oriented group have written extensively on a wide range of topics, encompassing campaign finance disclosure, gay rights, pollution prevention, legal aid, and bankruptcy.

ERG students can select a topic of their choice to improve their skills in data analysis, research design, and statistics. Students involved in the ERG program also have the opportunity to take part in special courses such as public interest law, housing issues, and bankruptcy law along with having the chance to work with prominent researchers in a work study program.
