This on line tutorial will take you through
the basic steps of performing legal research, from identifying the sources
of law to properly citing the authorities you find. There are links to
the ever increasing number of free legal research tools available on the
World Wide Web, as well as links to the major fee based services. The focus
is on researching federal and California law.
If you're already adept at legal research
methods and merely want a convenient place to start your on line research
from, then go directly to the Virtual Law Library.
