The success of the research work is not totally depends upon the selection of the research problem, but more importantly depends upon the quality of the research proposal drafted by the researcher. The poor writing of the proposal resulted in its rejection. All the key elements of the research process should be introduced in the research proposal because the research proposal is the blueprint of the entire research work which will explain the modes of data collection. Doctrinal research and non-doctrinal research are the methods of data collection wherein the collection of data from the field is required in later case and for that purpose it is necessary to draft the proposal in a proper manner. Empirical research requires Collection of data, Processing of data, Analysis of data, Interpretation of data, Presentation of data. No doubt for that purpose specific training is required. This research paper highlights the general principles and key components for writing of the legal research proposal for non-doctrinal research.
