Legal research is both a skill and a tool. It combines the study of legal knowledge, logic, and communications in order to develop the mind of an adept legal researcher.
Legal research is performed by anyone with a need for legal information, including lawyers, law librarians, and paralegals. Sources of legal information range from printed books, to free legal research websites and information portals to fee database vendors.
Law libraries around the world provide research services to help their patrons find the legal information they need in law schools, law firms and other research environments. Many law libraries and institutions provide free access to legal information on the web. This is either individually or via collective action, such as with the The Free Access to Law Movement .
The processes of legal research vary according to the country and the legal system involved. Legal research involves the usual tasks such as:
Legal research is known to take much time and effort. Furthermore, access to online legal research databases can be costly. This results in law firms and other practitioners turning to third-party legal research providers for their legal research needs.
The process of applying the law to the facts of your case. Moreover, arguing for a specific outcome requires more training than any single guide can provide.
If you plan to represent yourself, consider hiring a private attorney. They can help provide limited scope representation or unbundled legal services. This is a more affordable way to get help from an attorney in private practice. But not all attorneys offer this service. So outsourcing with us might be a good option for you.
