Research tips for finding legal issues

Reading court cases:
Cases usually begin with a summary of the case. If you are unfamiliar with reading court cases, try reading this first and supplementing
your understanding with articles and reviews.
Look up terms you are unfamiliar with in the FindLaw Legal Dictionary.
See the Tarlton Law Library Research Guides for help on legal research, including how to read law citations.
