Soanes, M. (2010). The Legal Questing Beast: Vocational Students’ Research Strategies, Motivations and Emotions. Law Teacher, 44(2), pp. 149-168. doi: 10.1080/03069400.2010.486168

Abstract

In the context of the Bar Vocational Course, this project enquired how students perceive their research strategies when they interact with repositories of legal information. The research captured and analysed the students' descriptions of these engagements and their motivations for as well as their emotional responses to undertaking research tasks. Some tentative comparisons are made between the students' strategies and those reported by a small number of junior barristers.
