Search Tips

USING THE SEARCH BAR

  1. Type your term(s) into the search field.
    (Keyword, Title, ISBN, Author, Practice Area, Jurisdiction)
  2. Click the search button or press enter
  3. Click on a document link to display

You may also use Boolean Connectors in the search bar:

  • QUOTATIONS (use quotations to ensure a concept will be searched for as a whole.)

EXAMPLE:

If you are searching for a term such as, umbrella clause, it’s better to enter the term with quotes “umbrella clause” otherwise you will get results back that could contain the word clause, but not umbrella.

  • AND (use AND to search for documents that contain each term)
  • OR (use OR to search for documents containing at least one of the terms)
  • NOT (use NOT to exclude documents that contain the term after)
