About This Class

The course discusses strategies for undertaking legal research for a particular assignment and discusses, supports and encourages well established practices and practical approaches towards carrying out effective legal research.  The course covers all stages of the legal research; from the point when a student or a lawyer is handed an assignment through to presenting the final findings of the research to the tutor or supervisor.

I have been involved in carrying out legal research extensively during my postgraduate degrees and then in my legal practice for around seven years in total.  The course also reflects my personal experience of undertaking legal research and working at a law firm ranked in 'Chambers and Partners', the organisation that identifies and ranks the most outstanding law firms and lawyers in over 180 jurisdictions throughout the world.

Hello, welcome to my page and thank you for showing interest in my course. I am Tufail. I have a strong passion for teaching law and have experience of tutoring law students for over 5 years. In addition to my LL.B. (Hons) and LL.M. in Corporate & Business Law, which included intellectual property laws, company laws, arbitration and corporate crime, I also hold 'Certificate in Delivering Learning'. The course provided me with added insights to develop and design courses for adult learners.
