How to Find Case Law and Legal Research

In this webinar, students will be introduced to legal research. We will define key legal terminology, identify when we might need legal documents, and discuss general obstacles that we encounter when doing legal research. Students will learn how to search for case law and other legal documents in the Gale OneFile: LegalTrac and Nexis Uni databases, as well as Google Scholar and select government websites. We will discuss how to access both primary and secondary legal documents, and how to optimize searches in each database.
