My official start date was February 1st, and it is from this date that all subsequent assessment deadlines are set. However, today feels more like the start of things, as I have just had my first meeting with the supervisory team.
It was a positive meeting. We’ve got a working title, the beginnings of a training plan, and some initial reading to do.
Working title- “What are the barriers to law school involvement in public legal education?”
Training- I’ll take some of the MRes modules in qualitative methods and philosophies of research, and begin reading up on interviews / document analysis / NVivo.
Initial reading- jurisprudence, research methods, history of higher education
The next meeting is schedule for May, where we’ll discuss my draft RF1- initial project proposal for approval- which I’ll then write up for submission at the end of May.
The next few posts will be reflections on the initial reading and some thoughts on methodology.
