Legal research is a systematic investigation towards increasing the knowledge of law. Not merely the art of looking for legal cases and statutes, it is a wholly separate discipline which can yield knowledge that is beneficial to the legal framework of society; it can serve to inform government policy; and it can also be of use in developing the law. By its very definition legal research follows a structure and parlance all its own, and requires that high standards of care be maintained in accordance with established methods, all of which are enumerated in this book.
Legal Research Methodology is an accessible and instructive guide on the discipline of legal research, written with law students and researchers of law in mind, to address the difficulties both student and researcher may encounter in the conduct of the discipline of legal research. Authored by a dedicated academic with wide experience in conducting research and writing research proposals and reports, this book is an invaluable guide to aspiring researchers and law students as it provides useful practical and in-depth guidance on how legal research can be successfully carried out and reported.
