Abstract

The legal research curriculum in law schools has traditionally focused on litigation-based research. There is, however, a significant portion of the law student population that will become transactional lawyers and conduct a different type of legal research. Written for Student Lawyer magazine, this column introduces students to some key research resources used by transactional lawyers. These resources include EDGAR, in-house precedents, Practical Law Company, and Bloomberg Law. This column also encourages students to explore the many other resources used by transactional lawyers today.

Keywords: transactional law, transactional lawyers, corporate, legal research, EDGAR, Practical Law Company, PLC, Bloomberg Law, precedents, mergers and acquisitions, securities
