Make a Zotero Account

Before you even download Jurism, you'll need to make a Zotero account so that your personal library of citations, PDFs, and research notes can be backed up into Zotero's cloud service. If you only store your library on your machine, you risk losing it all if your computer breaks or when you decide to purchase a new one.
