Abstract

Although law students and lawyers may joke that they chose law school because they're no good at math, legal professionals often hunger for data. Numbers can help us understand the world and can inform policy arguments. In this brief essay, I share some favorite sources and reflect on some of the challenges of finding and evaluating statistics.
