UBC Law Library has numerous links to Case Law websites and to Research Resources, e.g. legal abbreviation decoders and interdisciplinary indexes.
As a general rule, start your research with a legal encyclopedia or a textbook on the topic you are researching. Both sources will provide you with an overview of the topic, help you define and clarify the legal issues, refer you to potentially useful case and statute citations, and identify legal concepts that you may not have considered.
