Abstract:

"The aim of this book is to explain in clear terms some of the main methodological approaches in legal research. This is an edited collection, with each chapter written by specialists in their field, researching in a variety of jurisdictions. Each contributor addresses the topic of 'lay decision makers in the legal system' from one particular methodological perspective, explaining how they would approach the issue and discussing why their particular method might, or might not, be suited to this topic."--Publisher website.
