This edition of Legal Research Manual builds on many previous editions. While the manual is designed principally for use with the first year legal research classes, upper year law students will also find it a useful reference.
When you "Shepardize" (note up) a U.S. case using Lexis Advance Quicklaw Plus you will find out if it parallel citations, its case history, subsequent decisions that have cited it, and the judicial treatment in those citing cases.
Westlaw provides an equivalent to shepardizing a case. Law students can use their individual Westlaw Edge Canada accounts to access this information.
