    This panel will bring empirical data to bear on philosophical issues, experimental jurisprudence probes some of the most intractable questions in law. What are just desserts? When is causation proximate? How does consent work its moral magic? Traditionally, philosophers would tackle these questions from the armchair. Experimental philosophers get their hands dirty. They use techniques familiar from psychology and cognitive science to investigate how the concepts behind the questions work. This panel will explore what experimental jurisprudence is, how it works, and why it is relevant. It will also showcase various applications of experimental methods to the philosophy of law.
