Summary:A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO LEGAL RESEARCH takes a task-based approach to legal research in Australia. The text addresses the basic research needs of the law student and the practising lawyer who need to know how to quickly and effectively locate specific information, be it cases or statutes or changes in this law, and how to locate commentary on particular fields of law. Each chapter focuses on a legal research task, outlining the step-by-step process to reaching a solution. Emphasis is placed on electronic sources, with self-tests and exercises provided for practice. Test answers are provided online at www.thomson.com.au/academic for students to review their progress. Researching public international law, European Union law, and the laws of the United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand and the United States is also discussed. The book had its genesis in the legal research materials written for advanced legal research courses offered at Australian law schools and as such it is very much a teaching tool and guide for the those new to legal research.
