Electronic Legal Research: An Integrated Approach, second edition, is dedicated to fully explaining the rationale of legal research, guiding readers through the individual steps necessary to develop their own research strategies. Through exploration into the topic of legal database searching with substance and depth Electronic Legal Research facilitates long-term learning. Since new products are introduced every day and the market leaders constantly change, this text takes the approach of one set of skills, Boolean searching. This approach will enable the beginning researcher to do research in nearly any electronic database, specifically training students to research paid legal databases and the Internet. Electronic Legal Research: An Integrated Approach, second edition, is based on the concept of critical thinking allowing for intelligent decisions about how to find information through effective resource selection and query construction. Rather than a traditional how-to book, Electronic Legal Research: An Integrated Approach truly facilitates learning by presenting up to date information and challenging exercises that focus on critical thinking skills and practical skill implementation. This practical approach is a useful research guide for both students and working professionals, in both paralegal and attorney roles.

Stephanie Delaney, JD, is an instructor at Highline Community College. She is a member of the Washington State Bar Association.
