ENG 392: Legal Writing

This guide introduces students in ENG 392 Legal Writing classes to basic legal research using UMD resources.


This research guide introduces ENG 392 Legal Writing students to the legal research process. It supplements the legal research session of the class led by the McKeldin Library staff. Although it is designed to help students with their ENG 392 written assignments, others may find it useful for their own legal research purposes. It may be updated to account for class needs, or for changes in the print and digital resources mentioned.

If you're new to legal research, it's best to follow this guide step-by-step. The amount of time you focus on each particular step will depend on your research assignment and your instructor's directions.

If you have any questions about this guide or if you need additional legal research assistance, feel free to reach out to the McKeldin Library's subject specialist for law.
