The fifth edition of Oregon Legal Research continues its accessible, process-oriented approach to state legal research. The organization is consistent with the last edition, but the first chapter has been divided to provide a short introduction to the book that can be assigned before the first research class, with the first chapter then delving into research techniques.

Oregon Legal Research explains the sources, search techniques, and analysis of constitutional law, statutes, legislative history, administrative law, and cases. Additional chapters highlight the research process, with three comprehensive research strategies explained in the final chapter. Supplementing coverage of Oregon sources, an appendix introduces federal legal research and draws parallels to state materials. Another appendix reviews current citation to legal sources under Oregon court rules, the ALWD Guide, and The Bluebook. The fifth edition includes images from online resources at the end of chapters, where important links are labeled and explained.

Oregon Legal Research was designed specifically for teaching legal research to first-year law students, but it has also been successful with upper-level classes. Moreover, practitioners, paralegals, librarians, college students, and even laypeople will find it a useful introduction to Oregon legal sources.
