Legal Research and Writing

2nd edition

By Ted Tjaden


This book seeks to explain the practical skills needed for print and online legal research and for legal writing. It provides a current and comprehensive look at the topic, consolidating information on legal research and writing into one handy, easy-to-use resource.

The book is written for both the seasoned practitioner, seeking to add the latest techniques to their research arsenal, and for the beginning law student who faces a bewildering array of information. It includes chapters on legal research malpractice and the acquisition of research resources, as well as expanded coverage of Internet law-related resources. Author Ted Tjaden is the Coordinator of Information Services at the Bora Laskin Law Library, and Adjunct Professor in the Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto. He teaches both introductory and advanced legal research at the Faculty of Law and a graduate course legal librarianship in the Faculty of Information Studies.
