Need Help Researching for Your Paper?

At the beginning of the semester there is lots of activity in the library—especially for those students who are writing a paper for a class, seminar, competition, and/or journals and law review.

Don’t fret – the law library has you covered: we offer scheduled Research Consultations, and reference help (hours available) in person, via phone at 216-687-6877, by e-mail, or via chat (access via link on the library home page).  Let us know what you need help with, and what you have already done and a librarian will assist with finding resources and information.  Most research consultations are approximately 30 minutes in length depending on need.

The library has several research guides designed to assist you in starting your research: Scholarly Writing, Scholarship Technology, Finding Articles in Law Reviews and Journals, Bluebooking and Legal Writing Software, Research Databases, and our Citation Checking guides.
