Legal Research and Writing

The Law Library’s collection contains various materials to aid you in your legal research and writing. There are texts on legal research and writing, writing style, and citation. Also, there are dictionaries and thesauri. Useful features found in many of these materials are charts and tables, sample briefs and memoranda, suggested readings, and glossaries. Some also include appendices on citation, grammar, punctuation, and word usage. Most of these titles are located on Reserve and can be checked out for two or forty-eight hours. If available, older editions are located in the stacks and can be checked out for twenty-eight days. The following is a selected bibliography of the more current and popular titles.
