GNLU’s Workshop On Applied Statistics [3rd-4th Feb; Gandhinagar]

The Center for Law and Economics, Gujarat National Law University is organising a ‘Workshop on Applied Statistics using IBM SPSS Statistics for Legal Studies’ on 3rd and 4th February, 2018.

The aim of the workshop on applied statistics is to give the fundamentals of statistical analysis. This course introduces the basics of statistics for researchers to summarize numerical and categorical data obtained from surveys, experiments, etc. The topics include different data types, measures of location, variability, shape, and association between variables. The students are expected to learn the fundamental concepts of estimation, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing and apply appropriate tests for population mean, proportion, variance and difference, independence, and goodness to fit.

The students/participants if equipped with the tools of applied statistics using IBM SPSS Statistics for Legal Studies would be able to carry out advanced and detailed research activities. Often, legal research lacks a quantitative appreciation. This course aims at providing the participants with an ability to use empirical data and analyse them subsequently to give them a fruitful conclusion to their research project.
