Did you know that both the University of Wisconsin’s law library and Marquette’s law library offer great legal research guides? While they are obviously written with their students in mind, these guides can be of great assistance when starting research in a new or unfamiliar area of law.
Both websites offer tips and resources for a variety of areas. For example, Marquette has research guides for cite checking, conducting a legislative history, and alternative dispute resolution. UW provides subject guides on topics ranging from mental health law, to human rights law, to foreign commercial law. The guides list treatises available in their respective libraries, but can also provide web based resources.
