Introduction

This guide outlines major resources in intellectual property law and its subtopics of copyright, patent, and trademark law.

In general, when researching a topic within a substantive area of the law, one should start with secondary sources to find the leading and most relevant primary law. Once you have some citations in hand, look them up in primary sources. Be sure to check out the current awareness resources so that you stay abreast of developments throughout your research. See the library's guide to the legal research process for a more general overview.

Please note, access to certain databases linked in this guide may be restricted to UT Law or the UT community; please see the library's Databases page that lays out access privileges.
