“The Importance of Legal Research and Factual Analysis”
An essential skill every paralegal should be familiar with is legal research. But to ensure that your legal research skills are accurate, current, thorough and efficient you need to focus on the factual analysis of your case.
We invite all Paralegals to attend this free technical course to increase your level of awareness as it relates to legal research and factual analysis.
We are pleased to introduce Senior Trial Counsel, Mr. Marco von Antal of Stewart & Company who will provide a technical presentation on the following topics:
- Why a factual analysis is important before conducting research
- Convincing versus unconvincing cases and the role of stare decisis
- Researching case law in other jurisdictions
- Contemplating more than one possible outcome
This course will provide us with insight on the importance of critical thinking, understanding legal issues and familiarizing yourself with the law. Finding the law is an important part of legal research, but the skill of analyzing what you have found and reaching a conclusion to formulate an argument based on the law is just as essential.
