Research Guides for the Law Clinics

Law Library Research Guides are online bibliographies that feature resources for legal professionals.  These guides can be a good starting point for your legal research.  The guides include both secondary and primary legal resources:  For example, books from the online catalog, legal treatise, legal journals, case law reporters, federal and state codes, administrative rules, agency decisions and legal forms.  

The library guides also feature many online resources: the journal indexes, HeinOnline and Index to Legal Periodicals for example; subject-specific legal databases like the Bloomberg/BNA online newsletters and law centers; and when available, the guides link to free Internet resources for cost-effective legal research. 

Listed below are several guides that may prove useful for the clinical programs at the Law School:
