Serving as both a text for beginning law students and a reference for experienced researchers, Legal Research in a Nutshell provides an overview of basic research methods. The expert authors discuss case law, statutes, secondary sources, and other research tools; they also analyze resources in more specialized areas, such as legislative history and administrative law. Completely updated with dozens of new Web addresses and 20 percent more illustrations of print and electronic sources, this comprehensive guide explains the investigative process using online databases, CD-ROM, and Internet resources, including free and commercial internet sites. Discussion also includes international and comparative law materials, as well as business and interdisciplinary research.
