Are you confused already or just looking for an alternate explanation of the legal doctrine you learned in class? Consult a study aid or hornbook (hornbooks are legal treatises written for law students, if you haven’t learned in legal research yet). They can be checked out at the Circulation / Reserve Desk in the Library.
