Lincoln Law School of San Jose Blog

A great blog post from In Custodia Legis, the Law Library of Congress blog, regarding study skills and tools.

Using Secondary Legal Resources to Locate Primary Sources

Knowing the difference between primary and secondary sources is a key element of legal research. Knowing how to use one to find the other is another element. The blog post by the law librarians of the Law Library of Congress takes you through the various secondary sources, i.e. dictionaries, restatements, law reports, etc., and explains how those tools can help shape your legal research.

The Boccardo Law Library carries the same titles that the blog post discusses. Students are encouraged to come in and fine-tune your legal researching skills with the materials available here at school or online with your WestlawNext account. The library is also open for alumni, faculty and staff use.
