First Year Seminar- Basic Legal Research: Get started

This research guide is specifically for Barbara Tarter's FYS class that focuses on legal research.

Your starting point

For this class you will need to find relevant material related to the high profile cases that you will be arguing.  

 Academic Search Premier, Nexi Uni, Credo, and Summon are the four places that you should look first for information on your famous court cases.  You can find direct links to these in the box listed as 'Articles' below.  Should you need more information or help researching, please Ask a Librarian.

If you need to find the full court case citation, a good place to look is the Justia Dockets and Filings website.  This website also helps you search and find Federal cases, dockets and filings from U.S. District Courts and U.S. Courts of Appeal here.
