Legal Research Illustrated is a comprehensive U.S. legal research text, offering the broad introduction needed by novices and the in-depth coverage required by advanced researchers. The resources and the processes of legal research are covered, making Legal Research Illustrated suitable for a variety of teaching approaches. Throughout the text, illustrations show key features of print and electronic sources.

Every chapter of the 10th edition has been updated. Many chapters have been substantially rewritten. Chapters on case law (publications and finding aids), federal legislation and legislative history, state and municipal laws, court rules, administrative law, and international law provide authoritative direction in research sources and methods. Equally thorough coverage is offered for secondary sources—from legal encyclopedias to topical services to blogs. Both online and print resources are covered throughout. In addition, a separate chapter addresses issues that are particularly important in locating and evaluating electronic resources.
