About the workshop
Legal research is generally a neglected territory in most universities. The need for fostering a culture of research in the legal discipline is imminent. Recent times have witnessed a lack of skill and competence in this area leading to the deterioration in quality of the work.
Research is of utmost importance given that it is most important in policy decisions, judicial pronouncements and other reforms. The dire necessity to bridge the gap between the collection of required data and the adequate and structured use of the collected information is impending.
The lawyers using research for various purposes realise that they are lacking in skills especially at advanced levels of collection and analysis of data. This is because of the limitations in the curriculum, as research methodology as a course is offered to law students only at the PG level.
The workshop is aimed for PG students in law (LL.M) and Research Scholars (part time/ full time) who have registered for PhD. The maximum number of participants will be not more than 75 persons.
