This book is about research in the field of law. In recent years much has been written about the need and benefits of legal research, the methods and theories that are applied by lawyers, and the justification of methods and theories applied in legal research reports. Many law schools nowadays include courses about research skills in their curricula. Doctoral candidates increasingly are offered courses about research methodology as applied in law. 

Legal Research provides answers to exactly one hundred questions on legal research. It is a handbook that is easy to read, accessible for students, and richly documented, all for the design, execution and evaluation of legal research. The book discusses doctrinal, meta-legal, empirical legal and normative research, the development of a research plan and research questions, and various research methods and techniques including case law analysis, comparative law, interviews and statistics.
