Thanks guys for the comments. So the area of law is clear. It is very progressive IT law and all the new stuff visa vis legal regulation. It just seems that I am either proposing a broad topic or a topic that isn't dissertable. He is very bright and I think he just wants to dig into my brain and make sure that I don't have any fundamental legal gaps. But that being said, I still feel like the topics that he is suggesting are like literally very narrow. Another question that pops up is whether these topics are even my products or his products that he doesn't have time to research, and delegated to me to do it.

Hello. I'm doing PhD in Law. I just started it like a month ago. Problem is I still cannot find a common language with my supervisor with regards to research topic. We have been changing topics like 5 times. And every time I come up with an idea that initially my supervisor supported, he finds problems with it and suggests something else. Then I research a little, come up with idea, then the same thing. We seem to speak the same language, but I kind of feel that he is not happy with my ideas and sometimes he even questions my knowledge about particular area and wants me to read again stuff that I've read through my Bachelor's and masters. I can't understand, if he was so unsure about my knowledge, why did he choose me in first place. I don't know how long will it take Untill we concretize the topic and finally I'll start research on my topic. This situation makes me question my decision of even doing Ph.D, because it is draining to see that you professor is disappointed and doesn't get what he thought he would get from you. Is it something that I face only, and how should I deal with it? How can I motivate myself?
