Abstract: This paper discusses the practical aspects of performing empirical research in judicial institutions, based on my ethnography on the trial by jury in the city of Juiz de Fora/MG. First, I explain how I chose the object of study and formulated the research questions. Next, I present my fieldwork, showing what guided me and in which direction. In this part, I describe the main obstacles found during the course of this research. Thereafter, I comment on how the idea to do interviews emerged, how I performed them, which problems I needed to solve and how I treated such data. Thus, I propose to discuss the empirical research not by its results but based on the process by which it was socially constructed.
