Research Skills

Confer with Counsel

Every Michigan Law reference librarian has both a JD and a Master of Library Science. We are expert legal researchers, and we love to help students with research skills, writing projects, source gathering, and anything else they might have trouble with. Students can schedule a research consultation at a convenient time using the link below, also linked from the Law Library homepage.

The idea of writing a journal note can feel like facing a mountain. Librarians Keith and Kate demonstrated the guide that breaks this down into manageable pieces, so you can climb this mountain one step at a time. Find out where to find inspiration for ideas, how to evaluate the reasonableness of a topic, and how to check for and deal with preemption, plus much more!

Picking a novel topic seems daunting, but the Law Library has plenty of resources to make it methodical and doable!
