The worst way to find cases is the way most people do it: open Westlaw or Lexis, click to search all federal and state cases, type in some search terms and hope your results are good.
The best ways to find cases are (1) annotated statutes, (2) secondary sources, and (3) key numbers. If you begin your research in statutes or secondary sources, those sources will cite cases if there are any on the topic. Secondary sources include law review articles, treatises, and other books about legal topics. Once you have identified one or more good cases on your topic, use the key numbers found in the headnotes to search for more cases on that narrow legal issue identified by the key number.
Note: the key number system is available only on Westlaw.
