Focusing on qualitative research, chapters explain how to use non-doctrinal methods in environmental law research, including in-depth examples of successful uses. Contributors identify the theoretical and practical challenges facing contemporary environmental law
researchers, providing guidance on designing productive research programs.

It focuses in particular on how to respect scientific principles when moving away from traditional doctrinal research methods.
