Fundamentals of Legal Research
Updated to include the latest developments, Fundamentals of Legal Research provides an authoritative introduction and guide to all aspects of legal research. The guide offers an in-depth discussion of the legal research process, including citators, research aids, computer-assisted research, and key Internet sources. The book's 1000+ new appendix entries simplify research, and its illustrations and charts help clarify fundamentals. Designed for use in conjunction with Jacobstein, Mersky, and Dunn's Assignment to Fundamentals of Legal Research, a workbook of exercises that complement and reinforce information in the textbook, this textbook provides updated information on digests, federal legislation, federal legislative histories, administrative law, citators, electronic legal research, legal citation form, and federal tax. The eighth edition also includes significant discussion of the Internet, information from both The Bluebook and the ALWD Citation Manual (from the Association of Legal Writing Directors), and a new chapter on United Kingdom legal systems.
