Abstract [en]

Observation is an important component of research to examine complex social settings and iswell-established for studying courtroom dynamics and judicial behaviour. However, the manyactivities occurring at once and the multiple participants, lay and professional, make it impossiblefor a sole researcher to observe and understand everything occurring in the courtroom. Thisarticle reports on the use of two researchers to undertake court observations, in two differentstudies, each nested in a different research design. The social nature of data collection and thevalue of dialogue between the two researchers in interpreting observed events, especially whenstudying emotion, are readily apparent in both studies.
