Additional Book Details

This book fulfills the need of beginning legal researchersand experienced researchers new to Florida sourcesfor concise explanations of Florida's essential legal resources. It combines information about specific sources with an introduction to research methods that will enable researchers to move beyond the sources described in the text as new legal research tools emerge.

This fourth edition expands the treatment of online research using WestlawNext and Lexis Advance, as well as free or low-cost providers and governmental websites. The text emphasizes sources of Florida state law and includes references to analogous federal sources, making it a compact reference for planning both state and federal law research. The chapters have been reorganized so that the process of legal research is covered at the beginning of the book, along with concrete suggestions for organizing research in different media. A chapter on looseleaf services has been replaced with a new chapter covering a variety of practice tools, including blogs. The text also provides an overview of current citation rules for Florida sources.
