And suddenly, legal reseach was made simple! Excellent for anyone searching for information in a real or virtual law library (including paralegals, law students, legal assistants and journalists), Legal Research outlines a systematic method to find answers and get results. In plain, readable English, Attorneys Elias and Levinkind explain, with plenty of examples and instructions, how to read and understand statues, regulations and cases, evaluate cases for their value as precedent, use all the basic tools of legal research, practice what you've learned with "hands-on, feet-in" library exercises, as well as hypothetical research problems and solutions. This easy-to-use and understand book, now in its 14th edition, has been adopted as a text in many law schools and paralegal programs.
