Generally, one of the most important factors that establish the veracity of particular facts is the evidence adduced to support such facts. Just as a lawyer in a court of law is required to adduce evidence to support his or her statement of fact, a legal research is required to provide the relevant details, sources, and references to justify any statement or submission made during the course of a research. Therefore, legal research and legal citation are two important aspects of legal method that are closely related. This chapter provides an introduction to legal research and gives step-by-step guidelines on how to conduct research as greenhorns in the legal field. At the end of the chapter the student should be able to: (1) Explain what constitutes legal research in the study of law; (2) Understand the relationship between legal research and legal method; (3) Acquire the ability to identify the different types of legal research; (4) Understand the relevance and types of legal citations; and (5) Conduct a successful legal research.
