Written by five experts, Federal Legal Research offers concise, accessible explanations of primary authorities in the federal system, along with chapters on secondary sources, updating, legislative history, and legal ethics and court rules. Highlights include the book's process-oriented approach to research and in-depth discussions of strategies and techniques for conducting American legal research both online and in print. Federal Legal Research is effective in classes that integrate research, writing, and analysis as well as in courses with a more bibliographic approach.
Federal Legal Research can stand alone, but it also complements the state-specific books that comprise the Legal Research Series, edited by Suzanne E. Rowe, Director of Legal Research and Writing, University of Oregon School of Law.
The goal of the Legal Research Series (LRS) is to provide law students with the essential elements of legal research in each state. LRS books, which also have been used in lawyer training and paralegal programs, explain concisely both the sources of state law research and the process for conducting state legal research effectively. These books examine how to use each resource in a comprehensive research strategy and also incorporate legal analysis as part of the research process. Each book begins with an overview of the research process and then explains how to use electronic and print sources to research cases, statutes, legislative history, constitutions, administrative law, court rules, and secondary sources.
