The third edition of Tennessee Legal Research identifies new and relevant legal information sources as well as significant changes to existing sources that have occurred since the second edition. The book incorporates these updates into the discussion of a comprehensive legal research process, resulting in the most current explanation of researching Tennessee law. This new edition includes a new chapter on court rules, dockets, and practice materials. It also covers the uses/issues with artificial intelligence in legal research and emphasizes online research resources and methods.
A detailed appendix includes concise information on retrieving relevant Tennessee authorities from a wide range of sources, including print, free online resources, and paid commercial databases. A companion website hosts updated links to Tennessee materials and images of online sources. While useful as a text for new law students learning legal research, the book would also be a useful guide and reference for anyone researching law in Tennessee.
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.
