General Off-Topic Board / Can law students be hired to research case law?
« on: September 20, 2010, 10:54:40 PM »

 Please delete if this is an inappropriate subject.  I am not soliciting for services, but I do have a question and this looked like a good forum to ask.


 I have a family law case currently in the courts (Texas Family Law).  I have an attorney, it is cost prohibitive to have him research for hours in case law for some specific information.  Would it be possible to hire a 2L/3L student to do the research?  As a nonlegal professional, I find it difficult at best to find the specific information.  Essentially, I'm trying to avoid a paying a huge legal bill for something that has already been debated in a previous case.

 There would be no expectations of privacy or legal opinions, just a list of cases that have dealt with the subject/opinions in previous cases.

 Again, thank you, and my apologies if this is too off topic.
