LL.M. Resources: U.S. Legal Research

Resources for LL.M. students to navigate the library, the U.S. legal system, and U.S. legal research.

Research Pointers

Starting a Legal Research Project

One good way to begin is to review law library guides to treatises by subject.

Finding Library Resources

Westlaw and Lexis are two major databases law students frequently use to find U.S. law, but that's just the beginning. The library has many additional online and print resources that can help with your research. 

Ask a Law Librarian

Law librarians can help with:

  • getting started on research projects,
  • tips on using databases for legal research, like Westlaw and Lexis,
  • learning citation rules, like Bluebook citation,
  • and more!
