Medical Research For Attorneys

This lesson covers researching medical information, not health law research. This lesson will emphasize resources that are publicly available free of charge.

Michigan Legal Research: Primary Resources

This lesson is designed to provide students with both an overview of Michigan primary resources and a "how to" guide to researching various Michigan primary resources.

While the lesson aims to introduce the specifics of researching Michigan law to a researcher already familiar with the basics of legal research, it will also be helpful to students and professionals trying to understand those basics through the process of Michigan-specific research.

Michigan Legal Research: Secondary Resources
