This research guide provides a basic introduction to select resources available for researching family law topics and exploring family law practice materials, focusing on material available in the Gallagher Law Library. Some resources are freely available on the Internet; others are in UW restricted databases (e.g., BNA, HeinOnline). Some items are available only to people with individual passwords to Bloomberg Law, Lexis, and Westlaw.
