This text for first year law students teaches the skills needed for conducting legal research. Although it is assumed that the reader will primarily use WESTLAW, LEXIS, and other Internet-based tools, the authors do not neglect the world of books, indexes, and other traditional resources. Sample topics include understanding the components of a court decision, finding cases, and compiling a federal legislative history. The volume concludes with a full-length exercise in legal research using the case of Flambeau v. Honeywell. Berring and Edinger are librarians at the School of Law at the U. of California, Berkeley.
