Legal research skills are essential to law student success as summer associates.

TJSL reference librarians are experts, prepared to guide students in their independent acquisition of legal research skills throughout their law school career.  The law school facility, including the library is a tool that you have the right to use during your law student career.

  • Librarians are experts in legal research, they can teach you how to research strategically so that your research process is efficient and effective. Students who seek their assistance early and often may be able to complete assignments more quickly and easily.
  • Make a plan for your legal research education, because you will NOT learn all you need to know about legal research in the substantive law classes.
