I'm looking for court cases on a particular topic. Where do I start?
The Law Library of Congress has published two online research guides to help researchers start their case law research. Legal Research: A Guide to Case Law provides resources for locating and identifying judicial decisions from the U.S. courts using primary and secondary sources of case law. How to Find Free Case Law Online helps researchers locate free case law on the internet using Google Scholar, CourtListener, FindLaw, Justia, and Public Library of Law (PLoL).
