The present paper highlights the drawbacks and inadequacies of Indian legal research. An attempt has also been made to suggest remedial measures for improving the quality and enhancing the status of legal research in our law schools and university departments. Comparing the state of legal research in the UK and India, the author says that for legal research to be effective, original, and meaningful, law teachers and researchers should be provided at least basic and minimum facilities. One significant intervention is to cultivate the habit of writing in the scholar and he will thus have to learn alternative methodologies and ways of citations as per the requirements of the particular journal, and shall ultimately learn the art of writing. It is never enough to emphasise that for every discipline to be developed, high quality of research is a paramount necessity.
