Description

Maintaining that the development of legal research tools has been a fundamental and integral part of the history of law, this comprehensive anthology includes selections and notes on court reports, digests, legislative codes, administrative regulations, citators, treatises, law reviews and other sources, concluding each section with a description of the research tools of today and the impact of computers on modern legal research. Readings also examine the impact of legislative publications on the judicial interpretation of statutes, the attempts to bring under control the growing mass of information generated by modern-day administrative regulation, the interrelationship between the development of court reporting and the use of judicial decisions as precedents, and the effect of scholarly literature on the growth of the law. In each section, Grossman relates the historical readings to the legal information environment of today and in the Epilogue he examines the wide-ranging impact of computers on legal research. The book is intended to develop practical research skills in the most meaningful way--by appreciation of the forces which brought each research tool into being and the purposes those tools are intended to serve.show more
