The best legal research is always that which is provided to you by your favorite law librarian. However, for students and/or attorneys who would like to learn the methods of online and printed research, Principles of Legal Research 3rd edition by Olson, Kirshefeld and Mattson is an ideal resource. The book is available both in print and as an eBook, and for the law libraries with access to OverDrive you can purchase it today and it will be ready to lend tomorrow.
This edition updates and explains the latest features of the major legal research platforms as well as dozens of other free and subscription websites. For students taking an “Introduction to Legal Research”, this will be invaluable, just as it would for attorneys who wish they took “Intro to Legal Research”. All you law librarians out there – you already own the book, right?
