  Legal research - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Legal forms can be some of the hardest documents to find because one person may call a form by one name while another person knows it by an entirely different name (neither of which may be the actual, official name of the form).
Legal researchers may also need the briefs and other background materials connected with a case, which are included in docket records.
In addition to the text of the current law itself, legal researchers may also have to research the background documents connected with the statute, which is known as Legislative history.

 HLS Library: French Legal Research
Therefore, researching French law does not follow the same methodology as legal research in common law jurisdictions, like the United States.
In accordance with the civil law tradition, much greater emphasis in the French legal system is placed on codified law, the many codes, rather than on case law and precedent, as in common law jurisdictions.
As with research in common law countries, looking at the legislative process and the resulting legislation is also important, particularly for pending legislation or for constructing a legislative history.
