California legal research is not too different from legal research in other states. However, there are some California-specific secondary sources, including treatises and practice guides, that are frequently used by practicing lawyers.
The Harvard Law Library has several books that discuss researching California law; those listed below are in the reference stacks in the fourth floor reading room. Links to librarian-created research guides for California law are also listed below.
For help, visit the HLSL Ask a Librarian website: http://asklib.law.harvard.edu.
This site includes links to all of our research guides, contact information for the research librarians (phone, text, email, chat), and a schedule of our training classes.
