Survey Highlights:

Sixty-two percent of respondents did a large amount of research this past summer; twelve percent only did a small amount.

Ninety-eight percent of the 125 ND students who worked with summer associates from other schools considered their research skills much better than (8%), better than (48%) or the same as (42%) those of their peers.

More students used Westlaw (37%) than Lexis (21%), but 42% respondents used both databases. Only two students did not use either database.

Most respondents (87%) used electronic sources for their research at least 70% of the time. Nineteen percent used electronic resources exclusively.
