After beginning with legal research foundations and process, the authors explain research sources and strategies for secondary sources, statutory law, administrative law, and case law.

North Carolina Legal Research can be read cover-to-cover or used as a reference for a particular research question. While it focuses on North Carolina resources, the text also provides instruction for conducting research in other jurisdictions.

Some highlights of this new edition are the updated charts for the North Carolina court system and North Carolina legislative process. Each chapter ends with key takeaways for the reader in a “Tools for the Toolbox” segment. The book concludes with a full chapter devoted to legal citation that highlights how to properly cite North Carolina resources.

North Carolina Legal Research is written in a clear, concise manner that makes it easy to read and easy to digest the large amount of material being conveyed to the reader. This update to the Legal Research Series published by Carolina Academic Press is sure to be a valuable addition for the UNC Law Library, as well as for law students and attorneys throughout the state of North Carolina.
