“The position of legal studies has increasingly become part of a debate among legal scholars and their university colleagues in disciplines like economics, sociology, political sciences, psychology, history and linguistics. This shift has gone hand in hand with internationalisation, Europeanisation and globalisation processes over the last 30 years. The legal scholars’ playing field as well as the rules of the game, the methodology, have both changed tremendously, and that change has triggered a long overdue debate about methodology in legal studies.”
