Today’s Tip: plan how to conduct your research before you attempt to find anything

At the CALL/ACBD Conference last week I listened to Ted Tjaden (read him at Slaw) and Andrew Terrett talk about legal project management. My take away from their excellent presentation was that project management is applying a disciplined approach to your (or group) work.

Applying a disciplined approach to a legal research question will help you focus so that your strategy allows you to gather just enough information and the right information to answer the problem. Although it is not described as research project management, following the strategy described at Catherine Best’s Legal Research site.

Happy planning.
