This book is the first legal research guide that addresses the internationalization and globalization of both the new curriculum for law schools (especially in the U.S.) and the changing practice of law. Lawyers engaged in U.S./European transborder transactions need to know how to find, understand and compare applicable foreign and international laws. The book, written in English, bridges the oceanic divide. It contains useful appendices with glossary terms, abbreviations and tables. A revised and expanded edition of Legal Research Methods in the U.S. and Europe, 2. edition (2009) with the inclusion of chapters on China, Russia, England, and on researching foreign law generally, the title has been changed to reflect the broader scope. It is intended to be used as a coursebook for several alternative courses on legal research. As for American legal research, it explains the impacts and effects of the major changes and developments that have occurred very recently, including the introduction of Bloomberg Law, WestlawNext and the revolutionary movement.
