The Foundation for Legal Research provides funds for legal research falling into three broad categories, namely: Research and writing where the emphasis is on the statement of existing rules of law, sometimes referred to as doctrinal research; Research with regard to the working of the legal system; and Research with regard to development in fields peripheral to legal doctrine, such as criminology, psychology, psychiatry, sociology and economics and their relationship to rules of law. The goal of the Foundation is to encourage legal writing that would be valuable to Canadian lawyers and judges in their day-to-day practice of law and in the administration of justice.

If a grant is authorized, the Foundation will expect progress reports at suitable intervals and a completion report accompanied by a copy of the resulting book, article, thesis, etc. Recipients of grants should keep a complete account of the expenditures of their grant, and must submit a report on completion together with receipts wherever possible to the Foundation.
