Legal pedagogy” and “research methodology” are the two most important areas that make legal education and research meaningful in a Centre of Legal Education. There is a dearth of quality literature on these topics. After joining the knowledge profession, teachers and researchers need basic roadmap to move ahead. The proposed book project is meant to fill in the vacuum with valuable contributions from veteran and emerging scholarship across the country. 

The proposed book project is divided in two parts: 

  1. legal pedagogy; and 
  2. research methodology in legal studies. 

The first part is meant to add value to less explored knowledge domain vis-à-vis pedagogy of the pedagogy itself. In the whirlpool of otherwise widespread concerns for pedagogy, most rudimentary issues, e.g., what to teach, how to teach, and the like, remain often than not set aside while there are major issues for educational standards in higher educational institutions and legal education appears no exception to this end. In recent times, growth of information and communication technology (ICT) brings in a paradigm shift in the world of education; pedagogy and research methodology alike. So far as research methodology is concerned, stakeholders remain not well informed, and at times ill-informed, about the fundamental tools and techniques of methodology. For instance, quality literature on scientific formulation of research question, research hypothesis, etc., in legal research in particular, appears almost non-existent. Subject to their respective interests, authors are encouraged to submit synopsis on any of the sub-themes of their choice, followed by chapter on the basis of synopsis. 

The themes given hereunder are inclusive and contributors may select any other theme of their choice which falls within the four corners of the title of the subject matter.
