Legal Research

A tutorial and resources for Legal Research available at the Sprague Library.

Legal Dictionaries

Popular Name Indexes

Popular name indexes allow researchers to find the legal citation for a law or court decision by looking up its popular name.
      For example: Megan's Law, Clean Air Act, USA Patriot Act, etc.,

The United States Code and the USCA both contain popular name tables for Federal statutes.

For NJ laws and for the popular names of court cases use Shepard's Acts and Cases by Popular Name below.
