One of the best ways to find case law or statutes - particularly when you are unfamiliar with an area of law - is to find a relevant secondary source. Examples include:
When you use a secondary source, you not only find case law and statutes, but also vocabulary that can improve your searches. To further improve your searches see the glossary of legal terms within this guide.
Another important aspect of legal research is making sure you have the most current and updated cases, laws and information. Always check sources for updates; in books, for example, look for supplements. You want to make sure you are citing the most recent, best, law.
The UWT Library has several books from the In A Nutshell Series. Some are only available in Reference, others may be checked out, Gallagher Law Library has a large collection available by request.
