    Read an overview, find definitions and key cases, and focus your topic
  2. Secondary Sources:  
    Read book chapters and law review articles that cite case law and statutes/codes/regulations
  3. Primary Sources: 
    Having identified case law and statutes/codes/regulations from your reading, use a law database (Nexis Uni) or government information (ex. FDsys) to access them.
