Having trouble conducting your research or finding it difficult to carry out practice-based research? This book shows students in higher education how to approach and conduct practice-based (social) legal research. Furthermore, it offers tools and guidelines for the design and implementation of (social) legal research.
Practical experience has shown us that many (international) students in higher education struggle with conducting (social) legal research and formulating reports. We understand that initially it can be challenging to outline or to conduct such research. Students often experience research as abstract and complicated and need a more practical approach.
Offering a practical approach on how to conduct a research in 10 steps; this book will help students on their way to graduation and ensures teachers a resource with which to guide them. We make the translation from the abstract to a more practical way of doing research with the help of tips, images, tables, and examples you can use this as a guide to conduct your thesis or paper. The book focuses on the essential elements for the successful approach and execution of (social) legal research. This book is the perfect guideline for both the beginner, the experienced researcher and professionals in the (social) legal profession.
Being highly experienced in teaching and developing undergraduate and graduate programmes has allowed the authors to produce a well-structured book, combining elements of social science and legal matters and complimenting the resource with the aid of bountiful examples.
