CLR Research Overview

This guide is designed to help 1st year students in CLR by providing an overview of the legal research process and resources.  The guide covers Secondary Sources, Cases, Statutes and Citators. 

For additional help, consult a reference librarian.

 

Research Tip

Keep records of your work throughout the process.  Make notes of where you searched and your results from each step.  

This will keep you from having to repeat steps and will help you recall what search terms you used.  If you cannot find a definitive answer, you will be also able to report on what you did find and where you looked.

 

 

Getting Started with Lexis Advance, WestlawNext and Bloomberg Law
