In our legal research classes we do our best to get you ready to conduct legal research when you go out to practice. Because of that we don’t always get into all the research sources and techniques that may help you if you’re writing a case note or other research paper. I recently wrote a column for Student Lawyer magazine that may be of interest to you if you have to do this type of research (which I like to call “academic legal research”).
