Concise Legal Research details the technical aspects of a huge number of legal sources and explains how to research law with confidence and in good time. This new edition focuses on the impact of online access and the need for the researcher to move seamlessly between traditional and electronic resources. All strategies that have been created to incorporate hard copy researching techniques have been updated with alternate electronic methods. Particular attention has been paid to the chapter on secondary sources, and with the maintenance of a structured approach to research, recognises that online research -- with its many inherent pitfalls -- must carefully fit within rules of research required by the discipline.
