A Research Tip

  • Research & Writing

Today’s Tip: Take advantage of training opportunities.

Since we are in back to school mode, I thought a training tip would be appropriate. Legal research, like many other skills, is enhanced by practice. We don’t always have a chance to practice everything we need.

When was the last time you did research for a point in time historical regulation? When did you last need to find a United Nations document? Are you confident that if you needed ALL the commentary about a point of law you would be able to find it?

There are plenty of offerings to help you keep your research skills sharp. Check out your local continuing legal education group, the Canadian Bar Association, your local law library. You might find a legal research offering that will help keep your skills sharp.

September is also a great time to revisit training from the vendor of your commercial legal research provider.
