Legal Research for 2Ls

A short guide for basic legal research.

Legal Research

Welcome to a short guide to legal research. The purpose of this guide is to provide 2L law students with an abbreviated version of basic legal research to complement the work you have done or are doing in your courses as well as supporting you in your first professional research assignments. Therefore, this guide is not meant to be a comprehensive course on legal research.

You will find links to relevant primary and secondary sources as well as a research planning guide and the JUST ASK guide for accepting research assignments.
