9780314202727: Impeccable Research, A Concise Guide to Mastering Legal Research Skills (American Casebook) (Coursebook)

This book stresses a systematic, problem-solving approach to legal research that shows the reader how to actually go about doing legal research in an efficient manner, rather than just where to find the law. It sets out a clear, universally applicable research strategy that guides the researcher through the research process from beginning to end. The book also includes a section on tips for avoiding common research pitfalls in the workplace, a trouble-shooting guide for helping the researcher overcome common hurdles that arise in research problems, and a summary of the various primary and secondary sources of law and their use. While Impeccable Research is thorough, it is also concise and easy to read. For this reason, it makes an ideal reference guide for law students working as summer associates, as well as for practicing lawyers.

Review:

In our computer search-happy world, someone has finally said it and said it well. Step away from the computer and THINK. Legal research is not just a task. It is a process. To be done correctly, it requires thought, planning, and yes, a strategy. Bravo, Mark Osbeck. --Cole A. Wist, Partner, Ogletree Deakins

Professor Osbeck has come up with a nifty little book to help students and lawyers think clearly about what they are trying to discover with the various research tools. His big picture approach to research will help lawyers research more efficiently, saving themselves time and their clients money. --Kenneth D. Chestek, President, The Legal Writing Institute, Clinical Professor of Law, Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis
