NEW EDITION IS OUT!
The Bluebook is a style guide that prescribes the most widely used legal citation system in the United States.
Get ready to start using it in your legal writing class!
The law library faculty are delighted to welcome you to Research Lab!
This LRRWI course will introduce you to basic legal research tools, resources, and methodologies. You will learn how to find and evaluate a wide variety of legal resources and develop skills needed not only for your first year of law school, but throughout your legal career.
In the fall semester, you will study search logic, case law research, and secondary sources. In the spring, you will learn statutory, legislative, and regulatory research.
Once you are sorted into your Writing class, you'll be able to identify your Research Lab time on the HUSL class schedule. The first Research Lab session is scheduled for Friday, August 21. Before that date, be sure to set up your accounts in Lexis and Westlaw, and register for the correct Research Lab section on Lexis Classroom. Instructions are provided here and your unique registration codes were sent to your @law.bison.edu email.
We are looking forward to seeing you in class!
