When a practitioner or law student is researching a statute, she may start researching with various types of information. She may simply have a legal query, such as "what is the standard for the denial of asylum applications?" or she may have the "popular name" of a statute, such as Section 43(a) of the Lanham Act. No matter what type of information a practitioner or scholar begins the research process with, the tools listed and described in the tabs below will lead him/her to relevant statutes. Those tools include the table of contents, index, popular name indexes/tables, and keyword searching tips.
