Research Guides

RESEARCH GUIDES

Librarians have prepared guides that succinctly explain ways of researching various topics. Some of the most frequently used guides appear in the list below. Printed copies of these guides, as well as guides on several other topics, are available from the reference librarians.

RESEARCH OUTLINES

Librarians have prepared outlines of important citations on selected topics to help you more easily identify significant print and electronic resources. Printed copies of these outline guides are available from the reference librarians.

Other outlines, prepared to supplement classroom presentations, exist for special topics, such as preemption checking, researching CISG, the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, the International Court of Justice, and the European Court of Human Rights.

Selected Legal Treatises

TREATISES are generally the first resource practicing lawyers consult when they are confronted with an unfamiliar issue. If you access a treatise in print or on Lexis, Westlaw or Bloomberg and take a look at its contents you will see why.  Treatises are written by experts, legal scholars and practitioners and offer comprehensive and substantive exposition of the law in a given area with the most relevant cases and statutes methodically discussed and footnoted. Unlike cases, statutes, encyclopedias and law review articles which are available on all three electronic platforms and even the open web, most of the time specific treatises are made available exclusively by one legal publisher and not the other.

Although there are many ways to identify treatises, the Cardozo Library provides a list of treatises by subject to start you off http://www.cardozo.yu.edu/selected-legal-treatises.
