Excellent for anyone searching for information in a real or virtual law library (including paralegals, law students, legal assistants and journalists), Legal Research outlines a systematic method to find answers and get results.
In plain, readable English, Attorneys Elias and Levinkind explain, with plenty of examples and instructions, how to:
- read and understand statues, regulations and cases
- evaluate cases for their value as precedent
- use all the basic tools of legal research
- practice what you've learned with "hands-on, feet-in" library exercises, as well as hypothetical research problems and solutions
This easy-to-use and understand book, now in its 10th edition, has been adopted as a text in many law schools and paralegal programs.
