LEGAL RESEARCH

 

Hypo, Esq. took some time to compile this invaluable list of legal research resources for your use and reference, and he hopes that this list will be useful to both law school students and practicing attorneys.  By no means is this list all-inclusive.  Although this task is hippopotamus-sized, Hypo, Esq. is on a mission to have as many sources of legal research in one place as hypo-possible.  Hypo Justice will regularly update the legal research list as hippopotamusly possible.

  

Case Law Search

FindLaw.com one of the most trafficked legal sites on the web, designed to help find answers to everyday legal questions.  It includes case law, statutes as well as legal news and analysis.  Check out Findlaw's Writ – a free legal magazine in which various legal issues are explained, argued and debated.

Google Scholar allows to search for documents from many disciplines and sources, including court opinions and statutes.  It also allows to search for articles, theses, books, and abstracts, just to name a few.  To narrow down your search use ‘advanced search.’
