How can a Legal Research tutor help you?
Legal research, sometimes taught as legal research and writing, is a mainstay of the first-year law school curriculum. This course, which requires students to write a variety of assignments from many different perspectives, teaches students how to write memos, briefs, and other legal documents. It also instructs students on how to conduct legal research, which requires them to use different tools and techniques from the ones used in most undergraduate programs. These can be challenging at first, but Varsity Tutors can help students find a legal research tutor in their area. Legal research tutoring can help a student learn how to use the appropriate tools and how to write for legal classes.
Most legal research starts by looking at statutes. These are generally available through a number of sources, but most students use private online legal research services. These legal research providers are all very similar in that they provide some natural language" search and also allow for more robust searching using a system known as terms and connectors. By using the latter, students learn to find more precise and applicable results, and to find documents that answer their specific questions. The search will also find opinions written by judges in most of the courts across the country. These opinions, which interpret statutes and decide cases, will form the majority of most legal research. Legal research tutoring can help students learn to use terms and connectors in order to get the best results, and to understand how and when to use judicial opinions and what opinions really say.
