    Summary This text will introduce you to the dramatic transformation in legal research created by the electronic revolution. This edition focuses on using online databases, CD-ROM and Internet-based resources. The basic organization of our text mirrors the structure of both the law school curriculum and the legal literature. We begin with case law and statutes and then work out to secondary sources and other research tools. We also include discussion of international and comparative law materials.--From the publisher
