Research Fridays Winter Quarter Project Announced!

Interested in economic research but not sure where to get started? Join Research Fridays!

The SantaBarbara Women Lawyers (SBWL) has asked for our help to create, distribute and analyze a survey about the salaries and employment of lawyers in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. This is your chance to learn first-hand how data is collected and analyzed!

This group will meet Fridays from 2:00 PM -4:00 PM throughout Winter Quarter. The winter session of Research Fridays will be led by Professor Kelly Bedard.  This is an excellent opportunity to gain hands-on experience in Economics Research, and learn skills that will translate into any future career.
