February 24, 2021

The Advanced Introduction to Empirical Legal Research, the Advanced Introduction to Global Administrative Law, and the Advanced Introduction to Global Sports Law are now all available on the Elgar Advanced Introductions: Law platform, at www.advancedintros.com.

Advanced Introduction to Empirical Legal Research

Herbert Kritzer presents a clear introduction to the history, methods and substance of empirical legal research (ELR). Quantitative methods dominate in empirical legal research, but an important segment of the field draws on qualitative methods, such as semi-structured interviews and observation. In this book both methodologies are explored alongside systematic data analysis. Offering an overview of the broad ELR literature, the institutions of the law, the central actors of the law, and the subjects of the law are each addressed in this highly readable account that will be essential reading for legal researchers. The title is accessible for subscribing institutions here.

Advanced Introduction to Global Administrative Law

Sabino Cassese presents an incisive introduction to the essential principles of global law, exploring the central theories of globalization through an analysis of the main developments in this area. The Advanced Introduction concludes that despite the ongoing dialectic between national governments and international institutions, globalization and states are progressing in parallel, while civil societies are increasingly involved in the machinery of globalization. The title is accessible for subscribing institutions here.

Advanced Introduction to Global Sports Law

Stephen F. Ross presents this succinct introduction to key topics of law specific to sports, comparing approaches to sports law across the globe, with particular focus on the United States, Europe, and common law jurisdictions. Contrasting the profit-maximizing approach of North American leagues with the global integrated approach of professional sports governed by national and international governing boards, the book offers a novel model for the latter. The title is accessible for subscribing institutions here.
