This book is intended for the law student, professor, attorney, legal assistant, or librarian who needs to become familiar with Idaho state law.  The goal of the book is to provide a concise, accessible, but meaningful introduction to legal research in this state.

Idaho Legal Research begins with an overview of the legal research process and an introduction to the key sources of legal research.  A second chapter reviews research techniques using print and online resources.  Following these introductory chapters, the book addresses primary law with chapters on constitutions, judicial opinions, statutes, and administrative law.  Additional chapters cover bill tracking and legislative history, rules of court and professional ethics, citators (KeyCite and Shepard’s), secondary sources, and research strategies.  An appendix to the book introduces the fundamentals of legal citation.

Outlines of the research process and short excerpts from Idaho sources make legal research easy to understand.  Legal analysis (with special emphasis on Idaho history and use) is included in key portions of the book.  Concise descriptions of federal resources are provided, supplementing the book’s focus on Idaho material. 

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.

“This is truly a book for Idaho lawyers.” — Idaho Supreme Court Justice Roger S. Burdick, from the Foreword
