This guide includes an introduction to legal research along with a series of online modules to help you hone your legal research skills. Use the menu on the left to navigate to these modules. At the end of each module there is a quiz where you can test your knowledge. Before you get started, see the research tips below.
We have taken the difficult task of knowing which resources are available to you by providing links to key resources on the Law Library website, such as:
The Law Library has developed a research plan which you can use and modify to suit your needs.
Use dictionaries and encyclopaedias to find synonyms or alternative terms and gain a better understanding of your research topic.
Connect the keywords you have brainstormed using search operators such as Boolean. View the University Library's short video on building a better search strategy for tips.
Book a consultation with a librarian. The Law Liaison Librarians can assist with in-depth research assistance, reference management and more.
