Knowledge is the main advantage a lawyer has over you when you represent yourself. The lawyer can tell that the law says something and most people have no way to know whether that is true or not.
The Guerrilla Guide to Legal Research will give you the behind the scenes secrets that lawyers don't want you to know. Using the techniques described in this book you can do your own legal research at no cost to you, learning what the cases and statutes really say!
This book will tell you how to avoid the most common mistakes when researching the law and how NOT to fall into the traps that a lack of knowledge can create.
Like all of the Guerrilla Guides to the Law, this book does away with the legalese and uses plain language. It doesn't confuse or mislead you with pages and pages of useless information. When you want real knowledge, straight and to the point, then the Guerrilla Guides to the Law are where you need to look.
Using this book you will learn to:
- Research the law
- Where to go to find the information
- How to find cases and law for free
