Being a student of law, one has to get mentally prepared for grinding oneself so as to pace up with the developing world. Legal research is vital for any law student whether aiming to become a renowned legal researcher or not, the purpose of publications, analyzing policies, case comments are all dependent on the standard of the research done.

Research has to be always started with an aim to achieve and not specifically for the grades or to improve your curriculum vitae for the reason that eventually the research work would be published if written pre-eminently. This will enhance your researching skills with the essence of enjoyment followed by accomplishing the objective which is set by the author.

The impact of the research paper plays the performance indicator. The impactful new finding adds to your confidence positively. One of the most credible and renowned indicators is the use of citation in the research paper. There has to be precision while drafting the petition, policies and other legal documents which comes through regular and precise practice in legal research with the use of valid and reliable sources.

Need for astute research

There is nothing called law literature and non-legal literature. A piece of legislation is, of course, legal material while a book by a favourite author and the script of Bollywood or Hollywood movies can also be legal material. One should always seek the kind of issue the research is solving in the society rather than to qualify the master’s and doctorate by researching without any objective to change.

Credibility is established by writing research papers not by writing opinion pieces. Making a personal blog does not have the flavour of soundness as a result of which the author of certain blogs ends up cursing others for not reading or recognizing their research materials after writing them so well. Even if people will recognize the personal blog writing manuscript due to public relations one would not be able to make a career out of it until and unless you have a lineage of the same.

Also, time and again writing a blog do not provide confidence to the author as the author does not know whether his/her opinions are right or wrong in the spirit whether it is legally, socially and morally justifiable. The root behind writing the research paper is that it directs the audience to go to the personal blog, not vice versa.

Precision is the key to research vice versa research is the key to precision. Research methodology and technique should be kept in mind while doing research irrespective of the subject but especially in legal documents and drafting, English grammar and punctuation marks has proved to be instrumental as it completely alters changes and modify the meaning of the drafted document.

A legal researcher should intend to research as per the past events with regards to the evolving society. The legal researcher is required to know the contemporariness of the issue selected. For instance, if the article is to be written on the topic “Development of environmental law with the passage of time”, then the author should begin with the mention of the Chipko movement in India(tribal community movement). With reference to this, the author will surely research on tribal rights in today’s time period followed by understanding the provisions as well as the loopholes present in the present Indian tribal law.

This in turn will provide a clear and transparent picture to the viewers of the research paper which would help them relate the laws systematically and stepwise for superior comprehension of the theme. One should need to realize how the legal and historical research of the past will serve the present community. So to produce an effective and efficient legal research paper one should try to first acknowledge the modern relevance of the same.

Legal research linking the social events and the laws and the regulations proves to be more convenient for the common public to grasp the significance of the research paper. Whatever the topic is picked up should be linked to the present issue and the worth of the topic is to be analyzed thereafter.
