One of the many essential skills of a lawyer is the ability to research the law. It has been recognised for some time that the skills required to research the law should be taught at law school. Greater emphasis in higher education on the importance of teaching generic skills has coincided with discussion of the need for skills education for lawyers generally. The increasing interest of universities in the development of the “life long learner” has focused attention on methods of training students to be independent learners.
