RE: Q: lefthand/right hand side of equation

First, I got rid of the List brackets around your equation.

eqn = a + b == c + d;

l = First[eqn]
r = Last[eqn]
a + b
c + d

or

l = eqn[[1]]
r = eqn[[2]]
a + b
c + d

Check out Section 2.1 Expressions, and especially 2.1.4 Parts of Expressions
in the Book.
