Getting Started

Conducting legal research can be time consuming, but starting in the right place can go a long way towards saving you time, energy and frustration. The best place to start on a new topic is using secondary sources such as books, legal encyclopedias and legal dictionaries, which you can locate using QCAT. Legal treatises and textbooks on a particular subject can give you an introduction to your topic and lead you to relevant case law or statuatory law.
