Things to Consider

u.s. justice building

The fields of law and paralegal studies are complex subjects to navigate and comprehend.  A big help to researching these areas is to consider:

  • The type of law that is under investigation
  • The resources that provide access to that law
  • The jurisdiction that has authority over that law
    • is it federal, state, local, or international? 

Once you have answered these questions, finding the correct resource is much easier.

Keep in mind, there are basically three types of law:

  • Statutory Law (the laws of the land)
  • Administrative Law (rules and regulations by which government agencies operate)
  • Case Law (court opinions, also known as Common Law)
