Overview:

We are rarely taught the art of legal research and writing as a discipline in our law schools. However, legal research and writing remain imperative skills to excel in litigation, corporate consultancy, academics, policymaking, to name a few. Most courses on legal research and writing taught in law schools receive theoretical treatment which hinders skill-based learning.

This course focuses on implementing workable models in legal research by understanding various approaches to legal scholarship. You will also understand the importance and methodologies of aligning legal research and writing with the outcomes. This course has been designed and developed for law students as well as law professionals.

 

 

Course Overview

 

WHY TAKE THIS COURSE?

 

Recent graduates, once out in the practice of law or pursuing higher studies face tremendous pressure to take a 360-degree turn and understand the applicability of the law to facts.

 

Lawyers spend ample time interpreting, analysing, systematically arranging facts and law, and communicating their arguments. Each stage requires systematic research and writing exercises. Not only this, surveying, data analysis, and empirical trends also highlight the need for policy framework. Recent trends indicate that think tanks, law firms, and other knowledge management firms prefer hiring law professionals with an extensive publication and research record.

 

This course has been designed to provide an understanding of the fine nuances of legal research, writing and legal scholarship. This course will help in developing a goal-oriented and result-driven approach in legal research.
