When you think about legal research, it’s likely things like cases, statutes, and regulations come to mind. That’s good because that’s what we focus on in a basic legal research course in law school. Beyond those basics, however, there’s much more to legal research. If you want to be a litigator, for example, there are a number of other resources, like in-house work product, PACER, forms, jury instructions, and verdicts and settlements that can be great assets for you and your practice. There are also a number of publications (both print and electronic) that can help you with depositions, interrogatories, at trial, and more. I’ve tried to pull a few of these things together in a recent column I wrote for the ABA’s Student Lawyer magazine called Legal Research: Litigation Practice Materials.
