This article examines the Delphi method as a tool for legal research that can be used to facilitate transparent and informative law-making in the various fields of policy.

Whether the Delphi method is utilised in empirical or theoretical legal research or in legal and policy decision-making, this article demonstrates the strength of the technique in providing transparent and justified results, which in turn reinforces the utility of the method as a legal research and/or decision-making tool.
