This book is designed to guide readers through the difficulties of legal research and to provide the basic skills necessary for readers to find their way around the law library. The increased emphasis being placed on legal research skills makes such a guide invaluable for undergraduate students, those taking Bar exams and the Legal Practice Course. However, it is also a practical work of reference for use by trainees or pupils. In addition, it should prove to be of great value to the recently-qualified practitioner.

The new edition has been thoroughly and extensively revised and updated. This is particularly important to reflect the growth in electronic provision of information since the publication of the first edition. The book takes full account of the electronic and Internet sources now available and includes an index of over 200 legal websites and services. It includes a new chapter on Pepper v Hart research.
