It will deepen your understanding of methods and techniques in socio-legal research, developing a critical understanding of data sources, data collection, and analysis in empirical research in law as well as the ethical issues raised.
Teaching sessions will be a mixture of staff-led discussion, student presentations, and practical exercises. Preparation for classes, which may include the submission of exercises in advance, will be essential.
