The Law Library Legal Research Program builds on the critical research skills you learn in the Legal Writing Program by integrating advanced skills into the upper division curriculum. The Program is taught by library faculty – experienced law librarians who have also practiced law.

Why legal research matters

Legal research is an essential lawyering skill that you will use throughout your law career. It involves searching, analyzing, and evaluating information to ethically provide legal advice. Knowing how to effectively and efficiently conduct legal research is necessary for the competent practice of law: research skills lead you to the relevant court rules, statutes, regulations and cases for every aspect of law practice.
