Legal Research is an essential lawyering skill and researching law is an important component of the process of law reform. The ability to conduct legal research is essential for Legal Professionals regardless of area or type of practice. It is also a creative and strategic thinking process and it often demands that researchers think outside any set of prescriptive ‘rules’. It is a process that simultaneously demands imagination, creativity, discipline and structure and needs to be navigated strategically from start to finish.
