For clear and accessible step-by-step instruction on the basics of legal research, you can count on this thorough revision of a popular paperback text, Basic Legal Research: Tools and Strategies, Third Edition.

In addition to teaching critical legal skills, the author fosters confidence through:

  • a building-block approach that breaks the material into discrete and comprehensible parts
  • self-contained chapters on individual research sources and the research process that remain useful regardless of how a professor teaches research
  • comprehensive coverage of electronic research that allows professors to introduce as much - or as little - of the topic as they choose
  • end-of-chapter checklists, clear examples, and summary charts to reinforce learning and facilitate teaching
  • helpful graphics -such as sample pages and examples of research sources - throughout the text

    Basic Legal Research: Tools and Strategies, Third Edition responds to both user feedback and developments in the field, with several significant changes:

  • revised and updated coverage of electronic legal research, reflecting the many developments in this area
  • updated citation sections now include the ALWD Citation Manual
  • more information on state statutes
  • new coverage of procedural rules
