Featured Resource List

Spencer L. Simons. Texas legal research. Carolina Academic Press, 2009.

KFT1275.S56 2009

 

This book is a practical, process-oriented guide to the skills and resources necessary to research Texas law. The book begins by explaining the nature and types of legal authority, with an emphasis on the integral nature of legal research and legal analysis. These concepts are revisited and reinforced throughout the book. Since students often use online research tools from the beginning of their studies, research using print and online resources is explained for each type of legal resource throughout the book. Most chapters contain tables with step-by-step guides to research in particular types of legal resources, as well as summaries of other critical information. For each type of resource, research in federal law is addressed following the discussion of research in Texas law.

KZ4017.B54 2008

                    

Containing a synopsis of national bases of jurisdiction (one of the first of its kind), international law is presented in this book through litigation. Legal procedures determine what the law is. The great variety of procedures which determine international law, including diplomatic means, are comprehensively examined. This perspective is original and helps to explain foreign policy expediences and conflicting prescriptive rules. Written as an academic study the book is also meant to benefit those practicing in the field.
