Empirical Methods in Legal Research - Survey research
- Wednesday 28 April 2021
Gilat Bachar (Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law and Stanford University) specialises in civil justice and monetary compensation as tools for effecting social change. She is interested in the role that legal actors play in such mechanisms. Bachar uses a variety of quantitative and qualitative research methods (see list of recent publications here). On 28 April, she will talk about online survey research. Bachar says ‘In my most recent project, I conducted an online survey experiment, using a combination of vignettes and an opinion survey. I will talk about the process of designing and executing a survey experiment, its advantages and disadvantages, and its potential of pushing scholarship forward especially in areas of legal research which have traditionally been entrenched in a disciplinary silo.’
The working language of this session is English. Please register with Aleydis Nissen by 23 April (firstname.lastname@example.org). She will send you an email confirmation with the link needed to access the session. For the other sessions, please click here.
