This practical manual covers not only traditional areas of legal research (such as cases, court rules, statutes, and regulations), but also includes research instruction for more practitioner-oriented items, including the following: jury instructions; civil jury verdicts and settlements; briefs, records, and oral arguments; attorneys general opinions; professional responsibility sources; and Texas practice materials. It updates the references to print and online sources throughout the text to reflect current editions, and instructs readers how to provide proper citations to legal materials according to the Bluebook (20th ed. 2015) and/or the Greenbook (14th ed. 2018). This book is intended for law students, attorneys who practice law in Texas, and the many thousands of additional individuals who engage in legal research in a practical setting.--Publisher.
