Learn to conduct legal research without wasting time or duplicating effort! This one-of-a-kind text covers every phase of the legal research process and includes examples, illustrations, and assignments based on real-life cases. Practical information in every chapter shows you how to identify key facts and issues in a case, how to conduct statutory and case law research and analysis, as well as how to brief cases, research secondary authority, conduct electronic legal research and counteranalysis, and cite authority. Designed to help you develop an in-depth understanding of the fundamentals of legal research, the book guides you through each step in the research process, including how to determine what to research, how to identify key facts and terms, what to look for when researching, what to do with the research once it is found, and how to organize research.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The examples give great practical demonstrations of the core legal concepts of legal research."
"The Application section of each chapter is invaluable. After reading the chapter material, students then see how it is applied to a hypothetical case. Legal resources can be fairly dry material. Using a case hypothetical breathes new life into the material and allows students to understand not only the what, but the how of legal research. In a very practical manner, the application sections walk students through the steps necessary to apply the concepts they are learning. Once they've seen how it's done, I feel students have a much easier time making the transition to real-world research problems."
"Extensive use of examples. The text material is usually followed by excellent examples of the concepts just discussed. I urge my students to pay close attention to these examples as they signal to students certain concepts and also familiarize them with legal writing in general. These examples of legal concepts and procedures are clear, and many texts suffer in comparison."
