The Comprehensive Guide to Legal Research, Writing & Analysis focuses on developing the required competencies emphasized by the Federation of Law Societies in legal research, writing, and analysis and using those skills in both law school and professional environments.
The Comprehensive Guide to Legal Research, Writing & Analysis offers systematic, practical instruction, taking readers through context-based research problems. The book highlights examples and research tasks graphically and in full colour to facilitate the pedagogic experience. Screen captures of online resources are also included, assisting the researcher’s understanding.
Developed by an authoritative and experienced team of legal research instructors and librarians, this text covers a range of writing styles, including academic, objective, and persuasive, with an emphasis on legal analysis.
In addition to addressing researching federal resources, detailed provincial chapters written by a truly national group of contributors cover jurisdiction-specific techniques and content. Three jurisdictional two-volume editions are available: Ontario & Quebec, Western Canada, Atlantic Canada, as well as a one-volume national edition, covering all provinces.
