The Texas Empirical Policy Conference (TEPC) is a forum for interdisciplinary scholarship on contemporary policy from the fields of heath economics, education reform, meta-analysis, law, etc. The prior conference (previously known as the ALI conference, which can be found here) explored the role of policies in education, finance, entrepreneurship, and energy. The 2023 conference will build on past efforts using empirical and analytic tools to understand policies and their incentives.
We encourage economists, legal scholars, business school researchers, policy researchers, as well as industry experts to attend the workshop.
