The third edition of Oregon Legal Research has been extensively revised for today's law student. The book explains how to conduct research in Oregon cases, statutes, legislative history, constitutional law, and administrative law--using the most effective tools currently available. WestlawNext, Lexis Advance, and state-specific sites all receive expanded coverage. Additional chapters describe the research process, secondary sources and practice guides, and updating with KeyCite and Shepard's. An appendix reviews current citation to legal sources under Oregon court rules, the ALWD Guide, and the Bluebook. Concise explanations of resources needed for researching federal law are provided throughout. Thus, Oregon Legal Research can be used as a stand-alone text or in conjunction with a research text concentrating on federal law. While Oregon Legal Research was designed specifically for teaching legal research to first-year law students, it has also been successful with upper-level classes. Moreover, practitioners, paralegals, librarians, college students, and even laypeople will find it a useful introduction to Oregon sources. This book is part of the Legal Research Series, edited by Suzanne E. Rowe, Director of Legal Research and Writing, University of Oregon School of Law.

Legal research is a fundamental skill for all law students and attorneys. Regardless of practice area or work venue, knowledge of the sources and processes of legal research underpins the legal professional’s work. Academic law librarians, as research experts, are uniquely qualified to teach legal research. Whether participating in the mandatory, first-year law school curriculum or offering advanced or specialized legal research instruction, law librarians have the up-to-date knowledge, the broad view of the field, and the expertise to provide the best legal research instruction possible. This collection offers both theoretical and practical guidance on legal research education from the perspectives of the law librarian. Containing well-reasoned, analytical articles on the topic, the volume explains and supports the law librarian’s role in legal research instruction. The contributors to this book, all experts in teaching legal research, challenge academic law librarians to seize their instructional role in the legal academy. This book was based on a special issue of Legal Reference Services Quarterly.

This edition includes enhanced coverage of online sources, and WestlawNext, Lexis Advance, and free Internet sources are covered throughout.After introductory chapters devoted to the basic research process and research techniques, California Legal Research explores judicial opinions, the state constitution, statutes and legislative history, and administrative law. The book then turns to updating research with Shepard's and KeyCite, using secondary sources and practice guides, and planning a research strategy. A final chapter explains legal citation, with information on the California Style Manual, the ALWD Citation Manual, and the Bluebook.The book should be valuable to a wide range of audiences — from first-year students to seasoned veterans. Outlines of the research process and excerpts from key state sources make the book easy to use. The text includes brief discussions of legal analysis throughout, recognizing the interplay between research and analysis.California Legal Research supplements its detailed discussion of state research with brief discussions of federal research. Thus, it can be used as the sole text in a research course or in conjunction with texts focusing on topical or federal research.This book is part of the Legal Research Series, edited by Suzanne E. Rowe, Director of Legal Research and Writing, University of Oregon School of Law.

Each chapter of Wisconsin Legal Research is written with the novice in mind, defining basic terms that may be new to the researcher, before giving an explanation of the types of materials available. The authors have covered both print and electronic resources, since it is often a combination of the two that yield a cost-effective and efficient research result. Legal research economics are important, so the authors have covered the free and reliable web sites as well as commercial research services frequently used in Wisconsin. Written for first-year or transfer law students, paralegal students, law firm summer associates who are attending law school outside of Wisconsin, librarians, the general public and attorneys new to the practice of law in Wisconsin, the source-specific of this book will be useful, especially in the areas of administrative law and legislative history.
