Impeccable Research, A Concise Guide to Mastering Legal Research Skills (American Casebook Series)


Unlike conventional legal research books that teach how to find and access the various sources of law, this book stresses a systematic, problem-solving approach to legal research. It sets out a clear, step-by-step research strategy that guides students through the research process. The book also includes a section on tips for avoiding common research pitfalls, a Trouble-Shooting Guide for helping students overcome the occasional problems that may crop up in their legal research projects, and a summary of the various primary and secondary sources of law and their use. For this reason, the book makes an ideal reference guide for law students and young lawyers, as well as an innovative classroom text on legal research.
