The Law Making and Legal Interpretation across the globe have undergone a serious change that no more a lawyer or legal researcher could overlook the wave of interest in empirical evidences, both quantitative and qualitative. O. W. Holmes, J., identified and brought the statistical thought into the mainstream the legal studies in 1897 with his much-celebrated quote that man of the future is the man of statistics and master of economics. However it was only in 1990s dedicated research associations was formed for Empirical Research Studies in Europe and America. In India also there are similar trends, which are induced by the surge of the NGOs and Public Policy Initiatives.
Whether the current research programmes in law schools and colleges in India has taken cognizance of this paradigm shift in a proportionate sense is doubtful. In this wake, CED&L is undertaking initiatives to conduct a workshop in Quantitative Methods for socio-legal research.
It is conducted as part of its envisaged workshop series in Research Methodology. A Two Day Training Programme in Research Methodology and Public Policy Analysis was conducted by the Centre, as the first programme in the month of October 2017. As a follow-up and the necessary corollary, the Centre now announces its second programme in the series – Five Day Training in Quantitative Methods in Socio-Legal Research. Keeping “statistics” largely on focus, intense and comprehensive training will be imparted.
