Abstract

This paper reports on the design of a study using pro- cedures of modified analytic induction to investigate how courtroom procedures followed or did not follow child support guidelines. Using concepts from principles of procedural fairness and distribu- tive justice, the research team coded transcripts of public hearings on child support guidelines. This paper reports on work in progress and does not report results or conclusions. The coded examples of justiceprinciples demonstrate how procedures of modified analytic induc- tion lead to the refinement of conceptual definitions when tested against lived experiences.
