Empirical Methods in Legal Research series successfully concluded
ELS lab member Helen Pluut concluded this year’s lecture series on Empirical Methods in Legal Research. Helen discussed diary studies as an example of multilevel research designs.
Over the past year and a half, many sessions have taken place. These sessions were organised under the responsibility of Miranda Boone and Helen Pluut as part of the Sectorplan projects at Leiden Law School. Aleydis Nissen was responsible for the programming, while Nissen and Asmaa Khadim organised the sessions. The Empirical Methods in Legal Research series aims to equip researchers to add an empirical component to their work. The sessions provide an opportunity to expand research skillsets and to reflect on the role that empirical methods can play in conducting legal research. Topics included quantitative case law reviews, survey research and interviews. You can find an overview of the different sessions here. You can read entries on some of the methods covered on the Leiden Law Methods Portal.
Next year, the Empirical Methods in Legal Research sessions will continue in an exciting new format. Stay tuned for more details!
