Authored by Professor Spencer Simons, Texas Legal Research is a practical and process-oriented guide to the skills and resources necessary to research Texas law.

Chapters are devoted to the resources and techniques of constitutional research, case law research, and statutory research. The historical and governmental roots of Texas legal resources are traced for each type of primary law, and chapters on legislative history research and administrative agency research explore these more advanced topics in detail.

Instances of wrongdoing in and by organizations are prevalent in modern society, perhaps increasingly so in recent years.  Why do organizational participants—employees, managers, senior officials—engage in illegal, unethical, and socially irresponsible behavior? Normal Organizational Wrongdoing provides a comprehensive critical review of the theory and research on organizational wrongdoing. By using rich case study material, it illuminates different perspectives on wrongdoing, potential explanations of wrongdoing, and policy suggestions for the reduction of wrongdoing.
