New Course: Legal research in the real world

It should not matter what topic you are researching or whether you are using electronic or paper resources, you should follow the same research methodology. You need to have a clear understanding of the task at hand before you commence. This online self-paced module is designed to provide a strategy for legal research and an opportunity to put that into practice.

It sets out:

* how to write a memorandum setting out findings
* a strategy for organising material and creating a research trail
* what resources should be used and to critically evaluate resources
* how to establish search terms and key words to be used both online and in hardcopy
* how to establish the research task (what are the legal questions/task to be completed). This
* includes how to conduct the reference interview.

Finally it sets out some research tasks with a focus on legislation, including finding point in time legislation and advising clients of the law at different points in time.

You can start now from our list of courses, and choose others that suit your needs.

If you have requests for topics, let us know. You can also sign up for our newsletter on our homepage, so you’ll know what’s coming, and be alerted of new courses.
