Legal Research

Legal Research is a very important skill to master which helps you find answers for various legal questions, cross check precedents and focus on the facts of the case. You will be exposed to a range of important primary and secondary sources of law and learn how to analyse them using efficient search methods on a wide variety of legal research aids, especially online legal databases. This skill will be applied to resolve the primary case of the program.
