Missouri Legal Research was designed for teaching legal research to first-year law students, paralegals, and undergraduate students researching Missouri law. Missouri practitioners and others who need to be familiar with Missouri resources will also want this book in their library. Complex ideas and research processes are presented in a straightforward manner. Outlines of the research process and short excerpts from Missouri and federal resources make the book easy to use. Web addresses and examples point researchers to the many sources for finding free Missouri and federal legal material online.
Concise explanations of resources needed for researching federal law and the law of other states are provided throughout. Thus, Missouri Legal Research can be used by instructors as a stand-alone text or in conjunction with a research text concentrating on federal law.
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.
