This insightful Research Handbook provides a definitive overview of the New Legal Realism (NLR) movement, reaching beyond historical and national boundaries to form new conversations. Drawing on deep roots within the law-and-society tradition, it demonstrates the powerful virtues of new legal realist research and its attention to the challenges of translation between social science and law.

Highlighting a contrast with the current Empirical Legal Studies movement, chapters employ a variety of theoretically grounded methods to understand law and address legal problems. They explore an impressive range of contemporary issues including immigration, policing, globalization, legal education, and access to justice, concluding with an examination of how different social science disciplines intersect with NLR.

Incorporating global perspectives, the Research Handbook on Modern Legal Realism will be a key resource for scholars and students of legal theory and sociolegal studies. Illuminating the best approaches for combining social science considerations with expert perspectives on legal doctrines, it will also be of interest to practitioners and policy makers working in fields such as criminal and family law.
Critical Acclaim
‘This exciting Handbook is an essential resource on the New Legal Realism (NLR), which developed a distinctive genre of empirical research of law. The Handbook powerfully exemplifies NLR’s integrative strategy, which deploys mixed methods (qualitative and quantitative as well as observational and experimental) and is attentive to the challenge of translation between social science and law. Covering a wide range of timely topics, this rich Handbook provides valuable insights on legal institutions and the individuals and organizations that encounter law.’
