Intro to Electronic Resources You will Use in Law School

The UNH Law Library licenses resources from numerous providers.  The majority of these resources may be accessed locally or remotely by using the customized links on library web pages. Some require you to set up or register a password while others provide authentication using your UNH Law login name and password.

Electronic resources in law school allow you to work on all types of school-related projects throughout your J.D. program, residencies, employment:

  • looking up the law (primary sources)

  • reading about the law (secondary sources)

  • following new developments in the law (legal periodicals)

  • finding facts related to legal disputes (court dockets, jury verdicts, etc.)

  • searching intellectual property filings (applications for and granted patents, trademarks, and copyrights)

  • searching for basic information about lawyers, judges, examiners, experts, etc. (profiles...)

This guide focuses on four major research services. An alphabetical list of databases provides access to products licensed by the law school. Our electronic holdings change annually, so keep your eyes open for new and exciting research tools.

There is a great deal of support for using these resources including tools built into each resource, attorney account managers, chat and telephone reference attorneys, student reps and the Law Librarians. When in doubt - reach out!
