After clicking the Legal Tab,
- Click the "Federal & State Cases" link on the right side of the screen. The Legal Tab defaults to the Law Reviews Search form. This is because legal research should start with secondary sources (law reviews) and move to primary sources (cases.)
- If you would like to get a case by case name, enter a name (or both names) in the "Case Name" boxes. Although the formal name of the case is "Roe v. Wade", entering "Wade v. Roe" will return the same results.
- If you would like to get a case by citation number, enter the citation inside the "Citation Number" box.
