Principles of Legal Research will be published in June and available for fall 2009 class adoptions. Principles of Legal Research is the long-awaited successor to the venerable How to Find the Law, 9th edition, thoroughly updated for the electronic age. The text provides encyclopedic yet concise coverage of research methods and resources using both free and commercial websites as well as printed publications. An introductory survey of research strategies is followed by chapters on the sources of U.S. law created by each branch of government, discussion of major secondary sources, and an overview of international and comparative law. Sample illustrations are included, and an appendix lists nearly 500 major treatises and looseleaf services by subject.
