If you are not already aware of some of the major themes and academic debates surrounding your chosen topic then get reading. Do not look for big punchlines - it's a dissertation not an advertising campaign! Look instead for a well structured, critical analysis of the law (either in black letter or in practice or both) which advances an argument - your hypothesis. Do not treat it as an "essay", albeit one with an extended word count, you'll be engaging in a different process.
