Overview

The Fourth Edition of Legal Research and Writing for Paralegals continues to build a strong foundation for future practice while introducing students to the latest techniques and processes.

The text retains the features that earned it such widespread use:

  • clear, well-organized text for the introductory legal research and writing course, designed specifically for paralegal students
  • comprehensive overview of research and writing skills, reinforced by illustrations and exercises
  • integrates writing strategies into each research chapter to demonstrate the link between the two processes
  • timely and thorough coverage of electronic research, including a chapter on internet research as well as fee-based services such as LEXIS and Westlaw.

Throughout the text, the author supplies further tips on how to use electronic resources most effectively.

  • useful charts and diagrams help students understand complex topics
  • thorough explanation of proper citation form and updating/validating legal authorities, including Shepardizing and KeyCiting
  • samples of legal writing, such as letters, a court brief, and a legal memorandum

This timely revision contains much new material:

  • completely revised text reflects the changing nature of legal publishing
  • to help students learn how to navigate through cyberspace, a section at the end of each chapter, State Your Answer, now offers additional questions relating to the materials discussed.

These questions require students to access relevant internet sites and local information, and can be made state-specific.

  • a new feature, The Final Wrap Up, provides practical and pragmatic information on citing and using various research resources and advises students on when to use a certain set and whether it may be cited in various legal documents
  • Practice Tips now appear in each chapter, offering realistic and helpful suggestions for workplace success
  • expanded and updated Legal Citation chapter with more coverage of the ALWD citation manual. The examples of citation form given at the end of each chapter display citations in both Bluebook and ALWD form. Coverage is updated to the new (18th) edition of the Bluebook.
