Law and Social Science Research, A Collection of Annotated Readings. Volume I.
Sykes, Gresham M.; And Others
This collection of readings, comments, and class notes has been prepared for the law student as an introduction to the research methods of sociology. The fundamental argument is, that in the growing use of social science by the law, the lawyer needs to know how the social sciences accumulate their evidence and build their theories. The materials in this collection are designed to cover two yearly quarters, with the first spent on the readings and exercises, and the second devoted to independent research projects by the law students. The sections on law and the social sciences, law and empirical inquiry, the design of research, and the collection of data include books, journal articles, and cases. The last four sections of this collection are in Volume II, SO 000 277. SO 000 275 describes the activities and objectives of the project. (SBE)
