This highly respected practical handbook for Canadian legal researchers has now been thoroughly revised and updated since the previous edition published in 2003. The many dramatic developments in legal research over the past decade are reflected in this new edition, with a fresh look at traditional and modern research approaches in Canadian common law as well as chapters on Quebec, Aboriginal, US, UK, French and other international law. It is the only book of its kind in Canada to go into this kind of depth regarding other jurisdictions. You'll find this guide to be an essential teaching tool - providing you with a solid grasp of the research fundamentals you need in order to become the most effective legal researcher and writer you can be.
