Illinois Legal Research Manual by Laurel A. WendtThis is a completely revised and updated version of the 1988 first edition. Since that time, the State of Illinois has experienced many changes -- the Illinois Constitution passed its first required review, the Illinois Administrative Code can now be accessed via the state's web site (with changes often appearing before the next weekly issue of the Illinois Register is even printed), and most significantly, its statutes have been totally reorganized into the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS), with the Illinois Revised Statutes having been discontinued. This second edition takes these changes into account, reviewing statutes, local governments,the court system, administrative law, and all materials affecting State legal research. Wendt's work remains essential for students, lawyers, and other practitioners studying legal research in or for Illinois.
