Content Analysis Software in Legal Research: A Proof of Concept Using ATLAS.ti

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

This paper highlights the opportunities of utilizing software programs that allow qualitative analysis. By using software supported content analysis in legal research, we argue that research findings can become more scientifically robust (for instance, objective, reproducible and transparent). Nevertheless, the methods to do so are largely unexplored. The purpose of this article is to explore the value of ATLAS.ti software in conducting content analysis in law, supported by a proof of concept of legal research. Despite some limitations of qualitative analysis software, we argue that it is an accessible and useful tool for legal research.
