"Qualitative Methods in Legal Studies: Theories, Methodology, Practice"
In recent years, the field of legal studies has witnessed a growing recognition of the significance of empirical research in understanding complex legal issues.

We are pleased to invite submissions exploring the methodological diversity of relations between law and social sciences. We are looking for contributions focusing on every stage of the research process – qualitative approach and theories, qualitative data collection methodologies, and qualitative analysis of legal institutions, practices, and policies.
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
Qualitative approaches and theories in legal contexts
Social construction of law

Relationship between law and culture
Ethnographic approaches to studying legal phenomena
Application of qualitative methods in legal research
Ethical considerations, challenges and dilemmas in qualitative research
