Abstract:     
In this, the fifth of six articles, methods of finding legal materials by topic other than through the use of secondary sources are introduced. The article begins by examining the basic search strategies used when seeking legal information, then discusses how to apply these strategies when looking for legal information online or when using traditional paper legal resources. Specific attention is given to searching the Internet for cases, regulations, and statutes; using annotated codes; and finding case law using digests.
