Developing a Research Strategy

Before diving into a research project, it's essential to have a strategy for how you will conduct your research. 

At the Law Library, we've developed a research worksheet that you can use to help organize the information you've been given and develop a plan for your research. Feel free to make copies and use it as you're given research assignments.
