Finding answers to your legal questions can be a complex process. This guide aims to introduce concepts and resources that may help you find answers to your questions. The reference librarians at UIC John Marshall Law Library can also guide you to resources and explain how to use them. However, librarians may not give legal advice, which means they can not tell you how the law applies to your particular situation or "what the law means."
This page provides context for framing your question. The other two pages address primary and secondary sources of legal information. Also note this resource, How to Research a Legal Problem, from the American Association of Law Libraries, which covers the processes and resources here in more detail.
