Summary: For clear and accessible step-by-step instruction on the basis of legal research, instructors can count on this thorough revision of Amy Sloan's popular paperback text. BASIC LEGAL RESEARCH: Tools and Strategies, Second Edition, gives students hands-on experience in legal research and provides an up-to-date teachable text, especially well suited to a shorter course.

In addition to teaching critical legal skills, the author fosters student confidence through
:
  • a building-block approach that breaks the material into discrete and comprehensible parts
  • self-contained chapters on individual research sources and flexible processes to remain useful regardless of how a particular shcool teaches legal research
  • a comprehensive chapter on electronic research that allows instructors to introduce as much - or as little - of the topic as they choose
  • end-of-chapter checklists, clear examples, and summary charts to reinforce learning and facilitate teaching
helpful graphics -such as sample pages and examples of research sources - throughout the text
The Second Edition responds to both user feedback and developments in the field, with several significant changes:
  • completely revised and updated chapter on electronic legal research, reflecting the many developments in this area and featuring new computer screen captures and more on non-Lexis/Westlaw sources, including Loislaw and Findlaw
  • expanded information on constructing effective natural language searches, with new coverage of Boolean searches
  • updated citation sections now include the ALWD Citation Manual
  • a shorter chapter on legislative history
  • more information on procedural rules and state statutes
