"Legal research in New Zealand focuses on the elements and sources of New Zealand law in particular, with emphasis on developing an efficient research methodology, and the skills for comparative assessment of alternative legal resources. It includes a brief guidance given to carrying out legal research involving other (especially related) jurisdictions. It is anticipated to be of greatest use to undergraduates, law clerks, novice law librarians, librarians in public libraries which host depository collections, and self-litigants. It will include short quizzes to aid comprehension and recollection of materials"-- Publisher information.
