This DVD explains how to: analyze legal subjects in depth, formulate legal issues, find useful commentary, use commentary to find relevant case law and legislation. Case Law : How and where to find appropriate and relevant case law. Divided into two segments, this section helps researchers understand: why case law is important and the principles to identify significant cases, the process of finding case law on a specific issue. Legislation : Helpful hints on where to find relevant legislation and what to do with it once you have it. It deals with: the legislative process techniques for finding legislation, statutory interpretation. Outlines the necessary steps for thorough, precise and accurate research.
