We have argued in the first two chapters that legal socialization entails a linkage of factors internal to the individual and factors in the rule-governed environment. That linkage is the focus of this study. Our three-stage model translated the basic argument into specific variables and the discussion of the two leading theories of legal socialization suggested possible relationships among these variables. This chapter describes our research design, delineating the setting, population, key variables, hypotheses, and experimental manipulations.
