    In construction of this guide I consulted the LibGuides created by the following librarians: 

    Michael Germano JD, MA, MS, California State Library, Los Angeles Library.

    Deborah Mongeau, University of Rhode Island Library.

    Kincaid Brown, University of Michigan Law Library.



      Legal research may appear difficult but once you understand some core concepts related to law and how it is created as well as published, it becomes easier. The following guide will help you conduct effective & efficient legal research.
