The Law Library Legal Research Program builds on the research skills you learn in the Legal Writing Program. The Program is taught by library faculty — experienced law librarians who have also practiced law.

Knowing how to conduct legal research is necessary for the competent practice of law because it sharpens your analysis and leads you to relevant authority.
