Each chapter includes examples of every concept and principle discussed and a hypothetical fact situation in which the application of the concepts and principles is illustrated. The text includes valuable chapters describing how to determine what to research, how to identify key facts and terms, their importance and use, and the significant role of issue identification and its elements. A large portion of the text provides in-depth coverage of primary and secondary research sources, including Internet and computer research, citation format and case law analysis. In the last chapter of the text, the author has included a beneficial discussion of what to look for when researching, what to do with the research once it is found, and how to organize research.
