The course will introduce fundamental concepts, such as ‘theory’, ‘methodology’ and ‘method’, and provide an overview of main research methods commonly used by legal researchers. Apart from the main jurisprudential approaches, the course will also cover empirical and interdisciplinary approaches to law.
