Book Description: Computer Assisted Legal Research describes various research tools available to the legal professional by using the computer. These tools are presented in three parts of the book: the Internet, Westlaw and Lexis, and CD based materials. Through use of these tools, students will learn how to perform legal research, a valuable skill to have when seeking employment in a law office. Students can also enhance their learning with word definitions, summaries, and review questions, which are included in each chapter. Information on Loislaw introduces students to less expensive alternatives to research subscriptions. Internet sites are also provided to obtain information only previously available through the purchase of expensive textbooks or research systems. A comprehensive Instructor's Manual accompanies this text and offers course schedules, syllabi, chapter summaries, tests, and hands-on projects for students.
