This Professional Skills seminar will be a practical guide to legal research, using both free and paid resources. The presenter, Natalie Wieland, a non-practising lawyer, has been teaching legal research skills and techniques for over 20 years, the last 10 at the University of Melbourne Law School.
The focus of the seminar will be when to use the free and paid resources, not how to use them. Natalie will go through a number of research tasks and show you how to answer them, using a range of research tools such as CaseBase, Jade Barnet, Journals, Westlaw and LawCite. The goal is to provide strategies on how to tackle research tasks rather than a random hit or miss approach.
If your task is to provide advice on whether a clause in a contract is valid, where do you start?
