Product Description

Concise new title by the top author in legal research. Focuses on pre-and post-search analysis for effectively filtering vast amounts 
of material. Teaches students how to identify the most pertinent and authoritative information to solve a legal problem.


  • Concise, reasonably priced new title from the top legal research author. 
  • Approaches legal research as a filtering process to identify the most pertinent and authoritative information from vast search results. 
  • Part I: Explains how to define a research question; pre-filter content before beginning a search; conduct research; and establish post-search criteria for filtering results. 
  • Part II: Describes essential features of individual sources of authority and search strategies unique to each source. 
  • Part III: Contains research flowcharts to help students plan research strategy for different types of research projects. 
  • Contains all information students need to learn fundamental principles of legal research. 
  • Can also be used to complement other texts and classroom materials. 
  • Not simply a shorter version of Basic Legal Research. Looks at research as a process of filtering the available information, rather than as a process that requires first choosing the right source of authority to solve a legal problem.
