Introduction to Legal Research

Legal research is the process of finding and analyzing legal information to support legal decisions and arguments. It is a critical component of legal practice and is used by lawyers, paralegals, and law students to find relevant information to support their work. Legal research involves identifying the legal issue, understanding the legal question, and finding relevant legal sources to answer the question.

Primary Sources of Law

Primary sources of law are the actual laws and legal documents that govern a particular issue. Examples include case law, statutes, regulations, and constitutions. Primary sources of law are the foundation of legal research, as they provide the basis for legal arguments and decisions.

Effective Legal Research Strategies

Effective legal research strategies involve understanding the legal issue at hand, identifying relevant sources of law, and using appropriate legal research methods. Effective legal research strategies also involve understanding the strengths and limitations of different legal sources and evaluating the reliability and relevance of legal information.
