Description

This is a revision of noted author Deborah Bouchoux's market-leading legal research and writing text for paralegal students. This clear, well-organized text is designed specifically for paralegal students, offering a comprehensive overview of research and writing skills, reinforced by illustrations and exercises. Part I covers Primary Authorities, Part II discuses Secondary Authorities, and Part III covers the basics of Legaal Writing. The Legal Writing section includes samples of legal writing, such as letters, a court brief, and a legal memorandum, though throughout the book, Bouchoux integrates writing strategies into each research chapter to demonstrate the link between the two processes. In addition, there is thorough coverage of electronic research, including a chapter on internet research as well as fee-based services such as Lexis Advance and Westlaw. Additional tips on how to effectively use electronic resources are also included throughout the text. Bouchoux thoroughly explains proper citation form and updating/validating legal authorities.
