Super Lawyer: Super Online Searcher: Searching the CFR

By

This may sound like dry stuff, but when you need that CFR section, now, RIGHT NOW!, suffering ahead of time through a few moments of eye-rolling, eye-crossing, mind-numbing search instructions could pay off.

See the HeinOnline blog for a post on: Searching for a Section in CFR.

And even if you remember only a fraction of this search tip, you’ll be a better researcher in the end. I’ve learned that showing attorneys just a few creative online search techniques (in a database that allows more than and/or connectors) can in a few minutes turn them into almost super searchers. It’s as if a little light goes off in their nifty lawyer brains and they can take over from there.

(Washington County (WCCLS) cardholders can search HeinOnline free. But you must enter HeinOnline through my law library’s home page or from the WCCLS page (via Gov/Law link under Periodicals.)
