Individual assistance

You can meet with me, Sue Clerc, your librarian for law-related research. I have a law degree! I can help you research your project; teach you to use the databases; or give you an introduction to the resources available for legal research through the library. I'm also happy to answer questions by email. Email


What's in this guide

If you've never searched for cases or laws before, please have a look at the Getting started tab. I strongly encourage you--really, really strongly--not to try Westlaw, Cornell's site, Findlaw, Justia, or PLOL until you've searched Academic Search Premier or West's Encyclopedia of American Law. The more you know ahead of time, the easier legal research sites will be to use.

The background & analyses tab will direct you to databases and reference books.
