Overview

Oates and Enquist (both Seattle U. School of Law) take a new approach to legal research by focusing on issues rather than sources and emphasizing free and fee-based electronic sources. They cover the basics, such as how the US legal system works and what it requires in terms of citations, then move to researching issues governed by state statutes, federal statutes, and local ordinances, researching common law and constitutional issues, researching issues governed by state, federal or local rules, cite checking, and researching practice information such as that about judges, law firms, corporation, or people. They give practice pointers along the way, show screens to expect, give steps to develop research plans, and show the capabilities of various electronics sources as well as their limitations.
