Legal Research provides in-depth coverage of difficult legal research topics with multiple examples, illustrations, and assignments. Readers will find the book easy to understand with its subject matter presented simply and clearly. With its step-by-step approach, chapters introduce students to legal principles and authorities, legal research and analysis and the research process. In addition, chapters explain the role of key terms and facts in legal research with issue identification. Constitutions, statutes, administrative law and court rules are covered, as well as case law and analysis. Internet resources provide easy access of additional information to both the instructor and student.
"The examples give great practical demonstrations of the core legal concepts of legal research."
"The Application section of each chapter is invaluable. After reading the chapter material, students then see how it is applied to a hypothetical case. Legal resources can be fairly dry material. Using a case hypothetical breathes new life into the material and allows students to understand not only the what, but the how of legal research. In a very practical manner, the application sections walk students through the steps necessary to apply the concepts they are learning. Once they've seen how it's done, I feel students have a much easier time making the transition to real-world research problems."
"Extensive use of examples. The text material is usually followed by excellent examples of the concepts just discussed. I urge my students to pay close attention to these examples as they signal to students certain concepts and also familiarize them with legal writing in general. These examples of legal concepts and procedures are clear, and many texts suffer in comparison."
