Legal Research

One of the most important functions of the legal professional is the ability to find the most up to date status of the law concerning a client’s case. Here at NRCC, our library contains hard copies of several research tools such as American Jurisprudence, the Annotated Code of Virginia and Michie's Jurisprudence, which is the most thorough legal research tool for Virginia law, both civil and criminal. In addition, we are proud to offer each student enrolled in the program a web based research tool with access on campus and at home. 

The administration at NRCC has been very supportive of the program and the curriculum. To this end, the administration has funded the purchase of a subscription to Loislaw, a premier Internet legal research company. This investment in the Paralegal Studies department is truly an investment in our students as well.
