Legal Research Guide: Patterns and Practice has been popular with both law students, attorneys, and other researchers. The new edition continues its rich tradition and leader as a practical guide to the research process and the checklist approach. This marks the 25th Anniversary of the publication of the first edition of Legal Research Guide: Patterns and Practice in 1986.

In this Sixth Edition, a new chapter explains the interrelationship of manual and electronic research. Each method has its advantages and disadvantages. To do legal research accurately, quickly, and efficiently, the researcher must have a basic understanding of each method. Each is an important component and is best suited to certain types of information. Even with advances in electronic research, the authors believe that it is important to understand the manual research process and that some research can still be done more efficiently or completely through manual research due to the time and substance restrictions in databases.
