Letter Re: Legal Research

Permalink | Print


I have some advice for your readers on legal research. While it is not as robust as Lexis or Westlaw, Google Scholar is easier to use and should be more than adequate for people to find and read the cases they are looking for.  In addition to being able to directly access cases by the citations you provided, users may also search databases containing primary authority for both federal and state court opinions in the same manner they would do an internet search on Google or Bing. Another nice feature of internet research, as opposed to using a law library, is that you can access unpublished cases. While unpublished cases are not binding authority, they are often a good indicator of how that particular jurisdiction currently feels about a given issue.- Attorney D.B.
