The litigation [was] complex, multifaceted, and the required research records often extended back to the 1800s. Link ARC was efficient and responsive to all research requests, some of which changed the scope of the research and/or were on short notice. Link ARC was also timely with invoicing and reporting.

We see research excellence in the legal field as involving several key elements:


A high-quality litigation research process requires thoroughness in examining relevant legal precedents, statutes, regulations, and scholarly literature. This involves leaving no stone unturned in the quest for understanding the legal context and implications of a particular issue.


Accuracy is paramount in judicial research. Every citation, legal argument, and interpretation must be grounded in precise and correct information. Errors in legal research can have significant consequences for legal outcomes and the administration of justice.

Analytical Rigour

Judicial research should demonstrate analytical rigour in evaluating legal arguments, precedents, and their applicability to the case at hand. This involves critically assessing the strengths and weaknesses of various legal positions and crafting well-reasoned arguments based on identification of facts.

Clarity and Precision

Effective communication is essential in the judicial field. Research findings should be presented with clarity and precision, avoiding ambiguity or confusion. Judges, attorneys, and other stakeholders rely on clear and concise legal analysis to understand complex issues and make informed decisions.

Ethical Integrity

Research excellence in the judicial field necessitates adherence to ethical standards and principles. This includes honesty in reporting findings, integrity in citing sources, and respect for confidentiality when dealing with sensitive legal matters.


Judicial research should be relevant to the legal issues under consideration and contribute meaningfully to the resolution of disputes or the development of legal doctrine. Research findings should address the practical concerns of legal practitioners, judges, policymakers, and other stakeholders.

Interdisciplinary Perspective

The best judicial research often benefits from an interdisciplinary perspective, drawing insights from fields such as sociology, psychology, economics, and political science. This broader perspective can enrich legal analysis and provide a deeper understanding of the social, cultural, and economic factors that influence legal outcomes.

Peer Review and Collaboration

Collaboration and peer review play a vital role in ensuring the quality and rigour of judicial research. Engaging with colleagues, seeking feedback, and subjecting research findings to scrutiny by peers can help identify weaknesses, refine arguments, and enhance the overall quality of the research.


Ultimately, research excellence in the judicial field is measured by its impact on legal practice, jurisprudence, and the administration of justice. High-quality research should contribute to the advancement of legal knowledge, the resolution of legal disputes, and the promotion of fairness, equity, and the rule of law.
