Abstract

Costs are a reality of legal research in practice. Unfortunately, because of subsidized access to Lexis, Westlaw and other research tools in law school, law students have little exposure to the real-world costs of research. This column, written for Student Lawyer magazine, offers tips for becoming a cost-effective researcher.

Keywords: legal research, costs, cost-effective, Lexis, Westlaw, Google Scholar, Fastcase, Casemaker
