Law, Gender and Sexuality: sources and methods in socio-legal research

This socio-legal research training day in May 2014 on Law, Gender and Sexuality: sources and methods in socio-legal research, organised collaboratively by the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS), the Socio-Legal Studies Association and the British Library, drew attention to archives and their content that newcomers to the field may not be aware of and to consider the methodological and practical issues involved in analysing sources.
