Monika Leszczynska

I am an Academic Fellow at Columbia Law School and assistant professor of empirical legal research at the Maastricht University Faculty of Law.

In my research, I use various empirical methods such as behavioral experiments, vignette studies as well as systematic content analysis, and computational methods to provide insights into contractual behavior.

Rapidly developing digital environments expanded the number and type of transactions, and changed the circumstances in which we contract by heavily relying on the collection and processing of data. I study how contract law interacts with individual contractual behavior in this new environment focusing on how people approach the making of a contract and its performance.
