Michigan Legal Research, Second Edition, focuses on the process of researching Michigan law and on how to research effectively and efficiently in the context of solving legal problems. In addition to a comprehensive discussion of the research process, Lysaght and Lockwood cover enacted law; judicial law; secondary sources; case-finding tools; and legal citation. In covering these sources, particular attention is devoted to integrating free online sources with print sources into an overall research strategy. To assist students and new practitioners with understanding research concepts and strategies in light of jurisdictional constraints, the book includes references to, and discussions of, researching federal law.
This book is part of the Legal Research Series, edited by Suzanne E. Rowe, Director of Legal Research and Writing, University of Oregon School of Law.
