Many students and first-time practitioners may know of certain legal textbooks which cover a certain area, but do not know where to look to update the knowledge these books provide. Similarly, a legal problem may arise which is not generally covered by such books. This work deals with how to find the answers, how to update an answer, how to discover if those cases have been applied since judgement was given, how to find statutes and regulators, and how to research and understand the law.
