Video: Creating a New Future for Research in Law

Posted on Wednesday, May 9, 2018

In the fall of 2017, the uOttawa Faculty of Law convened a seminar to discuss the methodology of research in law. Acknowledging that the relationship between research and legal institutions is changing, the first Autumn School on the Methodology of Research in Law was created to allow students and seasoned researchers to come together to ask fundamental questions about the nature of law research.

For three days, Dan Kaminski, Professor in the Faculty of Law and Criminology at the Université catholique de Louvain, and expert on research methodology, orchestrated a conversation focusing on the “being” of research, rather than the “doing” of it.  The seminar was an unmitigated success, and provided a time and a space for a deep conversation on the experience of being a researcher and meeting the challenges of law research in the 21st Century.

The following video celebrates the first Autumn School on the Methodology of Research in Law and offers a glimpse into the important discussions going on at the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Law.
