Legal information sources are continuously evolving. The availability of content found through online-service providers, interface updates, search enhancements, and other developments are changing regularly. The second edition of The Comprehensive Guide to Legal Research, Writing, and Analysis provides students with up-to-date information about these developments, as well as assisting students in developing the required competencies emphasized by the Federation of Law Societies in legal research, writing, and analysis.
