Asked for a new book was sent a book that should have been retired, tore and too may highlights and comments in the book.
Very difficult to use in a master program that requires several hours of reading a week. November 1, at 2: This is such a terribly boring text….
But there is nothing exciting about law citation. Paralegals are the grunts and get no glory.
This book is proof. Anne E Kirby says: Very boring even though the subject is interesting.
I agree with another reviewer who thought the material is poorly organized. You probably are required to read this for a course, so grit your teeth and get through it. The chapters are very dense and un-organized. There is almost information overload going on here.
However it will help you pass a course related to the subject, just make sure you have a lot of time on your hands and are computer friendly.
This book is great! My daughter uses it for her undergrad legal research and writing class. I loved using this book.
It helped me to prepare for my classes. The text was easy to read. Very helpful when learning research.The textbook that we will be referencing is "Gilbert Law Summaries: Legal Research, Writing, and Analysis" 10th ed, BarBri Group, The US court system consists of a trial court, an appellate court, and a supreme or high court.
