empirical research steps

One LWI conference session I attended today covered Suggestions on How to Conduct Empirical ResearchRobin Boyle, Legal Writing Professor at St. John's University School of Law, and Dr. Joanne Ingham, Institutional Research Specialisit at New York Law School, gave detailed information on each of seven basic steps:

- identify the question or hypothesis,
- explain & defend the rationale,
- prepare a formal proposal,
- conduct the study,
- collect the data,
- analyze & report the findings, &
- describe & share the results.

Their bibliography is available on the LWI website and further information is available from the Association for Institutional Research.
