Do not limit your research to google. Keep books the primary source of research. There are many other sources which you can always refer to like scc online, jstor, vakilpatra, manupatra, Lexis Nexis, etc. You can also get a subscripttion to Law Journals, for example in Maharashtra there's MLJ - Maharashtra Law Journal which consists of latest case laws.
3. Analyse and plan your research paper.
Identify the goal of your paper - whether you want to write an argumentative research paper or an analytical one. Also, try to determine your audience - whom are you writing for?
4. Start drafting the paper.
FInalize the outline for your research paper. Justify main points, give key takeaways in the beginning. Acknowledge the authors and scholars. Remember to keep plagiarism to the minimum.
