It is difficult for normal legal science to prevail in the competition for scientific hegemony. Moreover, normal legal science is less practice ready than it could be. User-friendly Legal Science is a legal discipline designed to help. Its unique point of view is how users can use legal tools and practices to reach their objectives in different contexts. While normal legal science focuses on legal norms, User-friendly Legal Science primarily studies behaviour. This can help to bring legal research closer to organizational research.
