Connecticut Legal Research was written for legal researchers at various levels, including first-year law students, paralegals, and Connecticut practitioners. The book explains research skills and strategies with a focus on Connecticut sources. The book also includes instruction on legal writing and citations. In addition to chapters on secondary sources, statutes and legislation, case law, and administrative law, Connecticut Legal Research includes a chapter on insurance law research, reflecting Connecticut's role in the insurance industry. The book covers all major legal databases as well as free and low cost online legal research sources.
The goal of the book is to provide researchers with the tools needed to access each authority both in print and online, and to provide researchers with the background information needed to develop a research plan that integrates effectively all research formats available.
This book is part of the Legal Research Series, edited by Tenielle Fordyce-Ruff, Associate Clinical Professor of Law at Arizona State University's Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law.
