The Pocket Guide to Legal Research is a desk reference for use by paralegal students, practicing paralegals, legal assistants, and attorneys. Designed as a comprehensive resource, the easy to understand format allows the user to quickly obtain the answer to many commonly encountered research questions regarding case, statutory, secondary authority, Internet research, and legal citation. A glossary of relevant legal research, and appendices covering court opinion, elements of statute, and a research source chart make this book an invaluable resource for up-to-date information on legal research. Written in a non-technical manner, this book is appropriate for all levels of learners, from paralegal students to practicing professionals.

William Putman was an instructor in the Legal Assistant Studies Program at Central New Mexico Community College in Albuquerque, New Mexico, as well as the Paralegal Studies Program at Santa Fe Community College, in Santa Fe, New Mexico for ten years. He received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of New Mexico School of Law, and has been a member of the New Mexico Bar since 1975.
