Finding the Law


How to start doing simple legal research

To do legal research, you might need to know about the different types of law, the court system, court procedure (the rules), and types of legal information. The court system is covered in the Courts section of this Web site, but all of the other topics are discussed here. This section also talks about forms. Finally, this section contains links to Web sites that provide legal information and guides that will tell you more about doing legal research.
