Monika Leszczynska

I am an assistant professor of empirical legal research at the Maastricht University Faculty of Law.

I use laboratory and online experiments as well as content analysis to deliver evidence-based insights to legal decision-makers on the impact of law on human behavior.

My research focuses on contractual relationships. I’ve researched, for instance, what terms companies include in contracts for free digital services, how individuals react to payoff-irrelevant contractual provisions, or whether contractual formalities make people more cautious.

Additionally, I investigate how non-discrimination and affirmative action policies influence people’s behavior.
