Legal Research Methods: Principles and Practicalities

Be the first to review this product

The transition from undergraduate study to postgraduate study in law has traditionally been somewhat seamless: students are typically enculturated into the discipline of law, and have engaged in a variety of writing and research exercises throughout their undergraduate degree. However, the nature of legal research is changing dramatically, with more emphasis being put on how we are researching, rather than what we are researching. Undergraduate students are increasingly engaging in primary research as part of their degree, and typically borrow from other disciplines to do so. The reason for this is that, to date, there has been little importance placed on research methods in law. This book aims to rectify this in a manner which is suitable for students, not only in Ireland but internationally. Legal Research Methods: Principles and Practicalities is tailored to the needs of researchers in examining varying methodological approaches from a practical perspective. In addition to the principal approaches now commonly used in legal research (the doctrinal method; the socio-legal method; the historical method; and the comparative method) issues such as participatory and community-based research, as well as empirical methods, are examined by leading experts in their fields in a critical but clear manner. The book outlines the various types of methodologies, with authors drawing on their own experiences and expertise to examine the benefits and pitfalls involved in each method. This allows the reader to determine the usefulness of any method to their own research, and aids them in employing these methods and avoiding any pitfalls. [Subject: Legal Research Methods]˜
