Review: Basic Legal Research: Tools and Strategies

User Review  - sologdin - Goodreads

books on legal research really won't be much assistance. one needs to go to law library and learn the stacks. and then promptly forget the law library and learn internet legal research because that's what everybody does now. Read full review
