Legal research meets the purposes of retrieving information and finding answers to legal questions/queries. For legal practitioners, the skill for legal research cannot be over looked, an essential skill that even a law student shares with a legal practitioner. A common thread between legal practitioners and law students. Conducting legal research underlies the principles of finding, understanding, and applying the law. This process remains the same all over the world. Legal practitioners are being groomed not only to represent clients in varying degrees but also, to advise clients, prepare documents or documentary evidence, negotiate contracts, persuade the judge or jury as well as negotiate with opposing counsel. The importance of research in carrying out these tasks/duties cannot be underrated as legal research helps in identifying and retrieving information necessary to support legal cases, create laws, generate policies and assist in decision making.
