About this Event

All workshops will be held in the Phillipa Weeks Library, ANU Law School, on the last Friday of the month from 11am (immediately preceding the HDR Lunch). Remote access via Zoom is available for those who cannot attend in person.

Working with theory academic panel

What is the role of theoretical frameworks in structuring your thesis? How can theory guide empirical legal research? Are some theoretical perspectives more helpful than others for helping you to answer your research question? What is the relationship between theory and methods in law? In this workshop, a panel of ANU CoL academics will provide tips for how you can work successfully with theory.

Writing about theory

The academic panel discussion will be followed by a workshop facilitated by Academic Skills on how to critically incorporate theoretical perspectives in your writing. What’s your chosen theoretical framework and why? Using samples in law, we examine how to write effectively and persuasively about your chosen theoretical framework/approach.
