Legal research papers are generally classified as one of two types of sources: primary or secondary. Primary sources are „the law” itself, which we are obliged to follow. Secondary sources are documents on the law; They explain to us and help us find „the law” in a certain situation.

Although secondary sources, sometimes referred to as „compelling”, are very useful in legal research and the courts often consider them, no one is legally bound by them. Law librarians have created these research guides to help those starting a legal research project. These guides recommend print and electronic resources to help you find answers to your legal questions.
