Applications are invited for a two days “Workshop on Empirical Legal Research: SPSS Application and Data Analysis” from March 16 (Saturday) – March 17, 2019 (Sunday) for M. Phil., Ph.D. Scholars and Faculty Members in Law organized by Faculty of Law, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi, at Conference Hall, 2nd Floor, Faculty of Law, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi, 110025.
The last date for the submission of duly filled in application is March 12, 2019.
The workshop is for law researchers and faculty members interested in learning about empirical research and how to evaluate empirical work. It provides the formal training necessary to design, conduct, and assess empirical studies, and to use statistical software (SPSS) to analyze and manage data.
About the programme:
Research is a quest to gain knowledge. Research is a process in which a person observes the phenomenon repetitively and collects the data and on the basis of which he draws some conclusions.
Legal Research is a type of research in which research is undertaken as a part of the process of law reform, it is undertaken with a definite end namely making suggestions for improvements in the law on concrete and easily identifiable matters and the formulation of those proposals in precise terms.
Legal Research is one of the aspects of the study of human behaviour, their interactions and attitudes pertaining to any law.
Conducting Empirical Research in law is of recent origin. ‘Empiric’ means ‘relying solely on observation and experiment, not on theory’. The empirical research is carried on by collecting and gathering data.
The methods like Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) is a software package used for interactive or batched statistical analysis. It allows ordinary researchers to do their own statistical analysis.
This is a workshop on Empirical Legal Research: SPSS Application and Data Analysis, which would help the researcher from Law background. By this workshop, the researchers will learn the concept of mean, median, mode, central tendency, frequency, class interval, and many other statistical tools for the purpose of data analysis.
By the end of this workshop, the researcher would know the use of different statistical tools, application of chi-square, t-test, etc, different ways of data presentation and tabulation.
Moreover, this workshop will help the researcher learn the effects of any variable and interaction effect between variables as established by using Oneway- Anova Factor Analysis and Regression Analysis.
