Approaches to Interdisciplinary Legal Research
The Taxonomy of Interdisciplinary Legal Research: Finding the Way out of the Desert by Mathias M. Siems
Florida State University College of Law Research Center
Basic Interdisciplinary Research
• Basic Interdisciplinary Research
• Interested in specific legal concept, statute, code
specific case, etc.
• This could be analyzed in a purely doctrinal fashion –
not interdisciplinary
• But for example, a researcher who starts out researching
breach of contract, who wants to make a policy
recommendation, may want to look at the economics of
contractual remedies

Advanced Interdisciplinary Research: Type 1
Non-Legal topics
• For example; what to do about climate change
• Climate change itself is non-legal
• Kyoto Protocol
• EU Emissions Laws
• Legal research on areas of environmental law
require some background in science as well as
law
