    Given the lack of guidance and subjectivity surrounding scientific research, it is very difficult for students from law and humanities to come up with a publishable research paper or thesis.  For one, legal research is often loosely used to mean a lot of things that aren't exactly research - making it difficult for a student to distinguish the fact from the misinformation that surrounds it. For another, there are very few definitive guides on how to undertake research in subjects other than the natural or social sciences.

This course aims to fill this gap. This course will act as a comprehensive guide for those interested in undertaking research in the field of law and humanities.

What you’ll learn

  • Know what scientific research is.
  • Come up with a research plan for your thesis/dissertation.
  • Write a publishable research paper or research report.

Are there any course requirements or prerequisites?

  • There aren't any formal prerequisites. However, some experience in research writing is recommended.

Who this course is for:

  • Graduate and post-graduate students from law and humanities.
  • Research scholars planning to write a thesis/dissertation on a field related to law or humanities.

So, you collected the relevant materials for your research, went through them carefully, and evaluated the available materials. Now, what remains is to carefully dot down your arguments in your own words while supporting those arguments and ideas by citing relevant materials in the footnotes. It is necessary to cite relevant legal material that you have referred to because it reflects your research and in-depth study that you have undertaken to write that paper. Apart from that, while quoting the work of someone else, citation is necessary to avoid possible allegations of plagiarism. However, while citing the materials in the footnotes section, you cannot cite them as per your wish. For example, while citing page no. 99 of ‘The Start-up of You’ book written by Reid Hoffman, you cannot cite it as ‘page 99, The Start-up of You, Reid Hoffmann’ just because that seems convenient. There is a standard metho…

A journey called Law School: Few words for the newcomers

Law school has its own ways to teach us the needed, regardless of our consent or interest thereto! However, gradually, through the ups and downs of our journey, it seems that while there are some things that we can change, there also exist some things that need to be accepted. I have had my fair share of ‘law school experiences’ to enable me to write this piece. However, I cannot guarantee that you’ll be having the same experiences through your journey. Therefore, inapplicability regretted. So, shall we start? 1. You’ll be facing tough competitions. Yes, cutthroat competition. You’ll compete with unfaithful friends and sincere enemies. Be prepared to be betrayed, used, and knocked out. However, don’t let this affect you. Everyone you meet in Law School isn’t your competition, but a potential ally. Learn to build meaningful relationships. Remember, legends don’t compete, they collaborate! 2. You’ll be having not-so-competent teachers teach you. We all face it. And not just here, it’s …

Legal Issues Surrounding Cloud Computing

With the explosive growth of innovations in the Information Technology industry, the Legal provisions are currently lagging behind and desperately looking for ways to cope up with the never-seen-before advancements. Cloud computing, being one of such recent advancements, have raised a number of legal issues including privacy and data security, contracting issues, issues relating to the location of the data, and business considerations.
The abovementioned issues are the primary ones faced by almost all the nations across the globe. However, when it comes to the Indian scenario, a number of additional complicated issues are faced by India owing to lack of awareness and lack of resources. With the ‘Digital India’ initiative in the news, it is obvious that more and more individuals and organisations will be using online services and infrastructure via the Cloud in the near future; and it is therefore necessary to analyse our position thereon and discuss whether our legal system is ready fo…
