  • Locating federal and state case law, statutes and regulations.
  • Researching a legal topic using both primary and secondary sources such as legal encyclopedias, practice treatises, West keynotes, etc.
  • Orientation to bar prep resources, exam prep, and study aid materials for law students.
  • Textbook access questions for law students.
