Indexes and databases

Lexis and Westlaw are the legal databases used by almost all lawyers and paralegals.   Because of their expense they are only available to students currently enolled in the paralegal program.  Harper does subscribe to a database produced by Westlaw called Campus ResearchCampus Research contains cases and statutes from every state, as well as federal cases, code, and regulations.  Additionally it contains the legal encyclopedia AmJur, legal journals, legal guides, and other legal research material.  It also contains a large number of business related resources. Campus Research is available on or off campus to all Harper students and employees.  Community members may use it as well, but must come on campus to do so.  Below are listed some additonal databses which are not true legal databases, but may be of some use as well.
