Congratulations on graduating law school! Are you ready for the next stage of your legal career? You may start as a judicial clerk or an associate in a Wall Street firm, or you may work in a small firm, or even hang out your own shingle! No matter what you do or where you work, your clients and partners will expect you to deliver results in a timely and efficient manner. Can you find the information you need without Lexis or Westlaw? Even if your workplace has Lexis or Westlaw, they may not be the most cost effective option; what else can you do?
For starters, as QUSL graduates you are always welcome here in the Law Library. You may come in, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 203-582-3301. You can use the Law Library web site at http://www.quinnipiac.edu/academics/colleges-schools-and-departments/school-of-law/about-us/facilities/school-of-law-library/ or search the online catalog at http://qcat.quinnipiac.edu/search~S6 .
We’ve prepared this guide to give you alternatives to the expensive fee-based services. All the vetted sites in this guide are either free or low cost. We’ve also drawn on our own past experiences as law firm librarians about the types of research problems new associates are assigned to include nonlegal but useful sites.
We hope this helps and wish you the best of luck!
