A lawyer has to have experienced European society and the European legal research environment, for quite some time to be able to truly understand the way European legal research is conducted. The same can be said about Europeans dealing with America and its different legal frameworks. This book breaks the oceanic divide. It is the first legal research guide to consider the internationalization and globalization in both the new law school curriculums and the changing practice of law. Lawyers engaged in European/US transborder transactions need to know how to find, understand and compare applicable foreign and international laws. This third edition has been totally revised from previous editions and includes more chapters, including coverage of the Far East and Russia. It is carefully designed as a coursebook for several alternative courses on legal research.
