Book Preface

The seventh edition of Basic Legal Research: Tools and Strategies is fully updated and contains the following new material:

■ Updated sample pages and screen shots—The annotated examples, screen shots, and sample pages have all been
updated.
■ Updated coverage of online sources—The text covers thelatest releases of Lexis Advance, Westlaw, and Bloomberg Law, including Bloomberg Law’s natural language searching, BCite citator, and Points of Law function. It also discusses other services such as Fastcase, Casetext, and govinfo.gov (the successor to the Federal Digital System as the official digital repository of federal documents).
■ Updated coverage of citation—The text has been updated to cover both the ALWD Guide to Legal Citation (6th ed.) and the Bluebook (20th ed.).

Chapter 4 (Secondary Source Research), Chapter 5 (Case Research), and Chapter 7 (Statutory Research) have been revised so that professors can skip print materials in classes that emphasize online research.

The philosophy and the format of the seventh edition remain the same as those of earlier editions.

Todd was working on a research project, and he came to me in frustration and bewilderment over the research
