With law schools all over the country starting classes we wanted to take this opportunity to not only wish students good luck as they head back to classes but also to let you know about one of Hein’s newest classroom textbooks! Researching Texas Law, Third Edition by Brandon D. Quarles & Matthew C. Cordon is now available.
The unique legal system in Texas can compound the complexity of legal research. In practically every area of legal research, the resources and the nature of legal authority in Texas differ from what is typically covered by the major legal research textbooks.
This exciting new edition provides a much needed text for legal research in Texas, focusing on the types of sources and research processes that are commonly encountered by modern-day practitioners. It is now easier than ever to locate the legal information that you need, when you need it.
This research guide covers not only the basic skills that are needed to perform legal research in the day-to-day practice of law, such as case law research, statutory research, and administrative research, but also addresses such areas as jury instructions, briefs and records, civil jury verdicts and settlements, and attorney general opinions.
