Researching Massachusetts Law
This guide is a work in progress, brought to you by the Law Librarians at Western New England University School of Law. We envision it not only as a portal to the primary law and useful secondary sources for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, but also a place where a researcher could get some tips on how to use these various resources. As we say, it is a work in progress, so please do not hesitate to provide (constructive!) feedback in the links provided.

Librarians who staff the Reference Desk are available to help you plan your research strategy and to help you find resources that might be useful in your project. You may set up an appointment to speak with a Librarian about your research needs. The Law Library offers two types of electronic reference service for our law students: email and chat. To use email reference service, please contact either Renee Rastorfer or Neal Smith. The chat reference service is available during all scheduled reference hours, unless otherwise publicized. The buddy name of the Law School Library is WNELawChat. We are monitoring AOL Instant Messenger, myspace, and Yahoo! Messenger. See the "Chat With a Librarian" Box above.
