Socio-Legal and Criminological Research

This course provides students with a systematic grounding in empirical research. It introduces a variety of research methodologies, as well as providing an introduction to the theoretical bases of research in law and in the social sciences more broadly. It is assumed that students taking the course will have an area of law of interest to them. To that end, 2 modules may be taken from the school's LLM programme. A dissertation in the final 3 months of the course is intended to provide students with a project to try out the methods of interest to them, in their chosen legal subject.
