Welcome to the Law and Legal Research Resource Guide

This collection of guides, provided by Deakin Library, will assist you with developing your legal research skills. Building strong legal research skills early in your degree will assist you with identifying quality peer-reviewed journal articles, authoritative case precedents, and legislative resources for your assignment research. Proficiency in undertaking legal research is also a key graduate skill sought by prospective legal employers.

These legal research guides are prescribed reading resources for MLL110 Legal Research & Statutory Interpretation, MLM704 Foundations of Law and MLJ701 Legal Method & Statutory Interpretation.
