Each chapter of Wisconsin Legal Research is written with the novice in mind, defining basic terms that may be new to the researcher, before giving an explanation of the types of materials available. The authors have covered both print and electronic resources, since it is often a combination of the two that yield a cost-effective and efficient research result.
Legal research economics are important, so the authors have covered the free and reliable web sites as well as commercial research services frequently used in Wisconsin. Written for first-year or transfer law students, paralegal students, law firm summer associates who are attending law school outside of Wisconsin, librarians, the general public, and attorneys new to the practice of law in Wisconsin, the source-specific information will be useful, especially in the areas of administrative law and legislative history. 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.
