Health Law Legal Research: Getting Started

Library Chat


Health law in the United States is made by statutes, regulations, case law, and agency decisions at both the state and federal level. In particular, federal and state administrative agencies and regulations are very important in the development of health care law. This guide is intended to give you some places to start doing health law research. It may be most helpful to begin with secondary sources to get an overview of the issue you are researching as well as figure out what types of primary source materials are relevant.

Along with Westlaw and LexisNexis, there are two specialized health law databases that you may find useful when doing research. They include cases, statutes, regulations, and agency information as well as a wealth of secondary information that can be a good place to get started.
