Faculty of Law: Research Skills Series

Posted Wednesday, February 1, 2023

The Faculty of Law invites you to improve your research skills this semester through its Research Skills Series. This initiative is geared toward helping academics, practitioners, researchers, and students, develop and apply legal research skills by learning from the experience of others. This Skills Series focuses on the challenges faced, lessons learnt, and advice that can be shared rather than the actual substantive research conducted by the speaker, thus differentiating it from a traditional research seminar.
