California Legal Research

California state flagThis guide provides a basic overview of the California legal system and the process for researching California law.

California legal research is not that much different from legal research in other states. However, there are many California-specific secondary sources, including treatises and practice guides, that are heavily used by practicing lawyers in the state.

This guide explains what these resources are and how HLS students can access and use them in print and electronically.

For more information, questions, or content suggestions, contact Jennifer (contact information at right).

Additional Resources

The Harvard Law Library has several books that discuss researching California law.  All of those listed below are in the reference stacks in the fourth floor reading room.  There are also many excellent online research guides on this topic created by law librarians.  The links to these are also provided below.
