This research guide has been designed for use by members of the college who are not enrolled in a law-related course, but are looking for a specific piece of legal information. For example, legal materials such as court opinions are great primary sources; including them, when appropriate, in a writing assignment may complement the work.
Legal materials are interdisciplinary and can therefore be used within all areas taught at Saint Anselm College such as nursing (malpractice), social work (family court), psychology (human experimentation), politics (challenges to first amendment), philosophy (medical ethics).
Faculty and administrators may also occasionally require consulting the law in a particular area.
Use this guide to assist you in basic strategies for finding legal materials. It is not intended to be comprehensive. For further research assistance, please take advantage of the reference services available to you in the Geisel Library. Contact the Reference Desk in person or online at Ask a Librarian.
