Legal Research Strategy: help is on the way!

You have a legal research project … now what do you do?

Your friends at the HLS Library are here to help. Check out librarian AJ Blechner’s newly updated guide, “Legal Research Strategy.” You’ll learn how to tackle a legal research project step-by-step, and how to create a strategy that will save you time, avoid mistakes, and improve your final product. Topics include:

  • Conducting a preliminary analysis
  • Organizing your project
  • Researching secondary and primary legal sources comprehensively and efficiently
  • Ensuring your research is current
  • Knowing when to stop researching and start writing

Videos, checklists, and additional resource links are included, so you can explore as much or as little of the guide as you need to get your project off to a good start. Here’s just one video from the guide, covering the basics of legal research strategy:
