Legal Internship Research Toolkit: Home


Welcome to the Legal Internship research guide! This guide was created to prepare students for their upcoming internships. It gives an overview of legal research, consolidates useful resources that can be used during internships, and provides links to useful guides.

Do note this guide shares with you resources that you may be able to find in your law firms but we do not encourage the use of SMU databases during internships. If you are found using the databases for commercial purposes SMU Libraries may bar access to the databases to your account.

If you need further assistance or have any suggestions of what content should be included, please do not hesitate to contact the law librarians, Chai Yee Xin ( and Samantha Lim (
