Electronic Legal Research provides a unique, integrated approach to legal research. The book teaches students that there is basically one way to conduct research. Through the use of Boolean search strategies, students learn to research any electronic database. The book explores and expands on research strategies by reviewing common legal areas, including statutes, regulations, caselaw, and more. The provided exercises in each chapter challenge the student's thinking, while providing useful hints aid memorization. Supplemental materials include a teacher's guide that contains useful information for the instructor.
