A group of law librarians met at the 2010 AALL Annual Meeting in Denver, CO to discuss the formation of a group to support law librarians who are involved with empirical research. As a result of this meeting, the Empirical Research Caucus of the American Association of Law Libraries was organized in January 2011.

The first official meeting of the Empirical Research Caucus will be held at the 2011 AALL Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, PA on Sunday, July 24, 2011 at 12 noon in Room 304 of the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
