A lawyer has to have experienced European society and the European legal research environment, for quite some time to be able to truly understand the way European legal research is conducted. The same can be said about Europeans dealing with America and its different legal frameworks. This book breaks the oceanic divide. It is the first legal research guide to consider the internationalization and globalization in both the new law school curriculums and the changing practice of law. Lawyers engaged in European/US transborder transactions need to know how to find, understand and compare applicable foreign and international laws. This third edition has been totally revised from previous editions and includes more chapters, including coverage of the Far East and Russia. It is carefully designed as a coursebook for several alternative courses on legal research.

This book is designed for use as a coursebook for classes in foreign and international legal research. However, librarians, students, law professors and other researchers can also use it as a research guide outside of formal classes. The order of chapters is one possible way to structure a class in international and foreign legal research, but it is by no means the only one or the best one. This book can also be used as a tool for quick look-ups when a researcher needs some direction on a topic or information on a source.
