Circumstantial evidence is a very tricky thing. It may seem to point very straight to one thing, but if you shift your own point of view a little, you may find it pointing in an equally uncompromising manner to something entirely different.

Legal writing may present particular difficulties to students unaccustomed to the subject matter and style. This chapter discusses how best to use your research time, and how to present your work.
Basic essay writing skills such as structure, organisation, and editing are briefly discussed here (you will find some further references in Appendix I, from your institution's study skills unit, and in your departmental guide). Similarly, this chapter does not discuss particular legal research methods. Your law librarians will be able to assist you in this regard.
