This guide is designed for first year students to use throughout the fall semester in conjunction with the WRAP research assignments (practice sets). It will help you learn about the various legal research sources and resources, and how to use them effectively and efficiently.
Each tab of this guide covers a specific legal research source and/or resource. There you will find reference to the pages in the Process book where that topic is covered, a tutorial that will teach you more about it, and additional material to help you further understand how and when you would use a particular resource. New tabs will be added as the semester goes along.
Please also remember that the Research and Instructional Librarians are available to assist you with learning legal research. You can stop in and see us in person during our open hours, or contact us by phone, email, or instant message (see the Chat with a Librarian box below). We are happy to help you in any way we can!
