The typical legal career will inevitably involve some government documents.  Many important government documents are easy to locate and retrieve from government websites such as FDsys.  Others may be more difficult to find.  This guide discusses some of the sources of documents from each branch.  The topic of this guide overlaps with others offered, e.g. general legal research, case law research, administrative law, and legislative history.  For more specific information on a particular government, you may wish to review the appropriate guide.

I hope this guide proves of use.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at the number or email listed in the right column.
