Everything you need for the JD and BALS programs in the JFK School of Law including textbooks, study aids, legal databases, research services, workshops, guides and more.

Introduction

We offer 2 types of research consultations: live and recorded. 

  • Choose our regular, live consultations if you would like a more interactive, one-on-one Q & A experience with a law librarian.
  • Choose a recorded research consultation if you would like to view a tutorial-like video customized to your assignment needs, recorded and sent to your e-mail by one of the law librarians. 

The box below rotates through each type. Choose depending on your preferences. 

Legal Research Services

Legal Research Consultations

JFK Legal Research Training Consultation service provides one-on-one legal research support for JFK College of Law students in the JD Law and BA Legal Studies programs. Legal specialist librarians, Jamie or Sherry, will sit down with you over Zoom to assist with:
  • Locating secondary and primary law resources within WestlawEdge, Lexis+, and other databases.
  • Training on important legal materials and how they can help you in your research process.
  • How to get started on your legal research assignment
Note: Librarians cannot provide legal advice, including how to analyze materials or what conclusions to draw from the resources; we can only point you to the resources - from there, inquire with your professor for help with analysis.
