Coming soon: New York Legal Research

The library recently has received new copies of New York Legal Research by Elizabeth G. Adelman and Suzanne E. Rowe (Durham, NC: Carolina Academic Press, 2008). The copies should be processed and available to patrons soon.

This new book provides an introduction to the topic of New York legal research. In contrast to New York Legal Research Guide by William H. Manz, this new book provides an introduction to New York legal research with an eye to the novice researcher. The Manz book, an excellent source, provides in-depth detail, whereas the new Adelman volume states concepts in simple terms that are well-suited for law students and legal assistants. Using the two volumes in tandem, one can enjoy the best of both worlds -- a summary for quick consultation and careful detail when warranted.
