The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Just last week, I told a group of paralegals at a civil litigation seminar to always start their informal case investigation with a Google search. This week, I would tell them that they can also start their free legal research using Google Scholar.
What is Google Scholar? Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research.
