Legal research and legal writing are essential skills that students need to master if they want to succeed in their studies and in their future careers. This book is a practical guide to effective legal research, steering students through legislation and judgements and introducing them to the range of online resources available to them. In explaining tone, style and citation, the book will also assist students in drafting clear legal texts.
