Additional Book Details

Sources and Strategies of Legal Research, intended for use in first-year legal writing and research courses, offers a new approach to the course subject matter based on the concept that legal analysis is essential to legal research. This concise book is unique in two ways: it places legal analysis as the focal point of legal research; and it departs from the typical source-specific or bibliographical approach, instead taking a process-oriented approach, focusing on search strategies for efficiently and effectively finding information.

The book is organized around six fundamental questions:

What is legal analysis in a research context?
What source has the relevant information needed to resolve the client's problem?
Why should a researcher select this specific source?
How should the information be used to advance the research process?
What is the optimal research strategy to locate the information efficiently and effectively?
What is a research strategy or plan?
By incorporating the author's scholarship in the pedagogy of legal research,

Sources and Strategies of Legal Research presents a contemporary approach to legal research within the larger context of the legal profession.
