<p><em>Texas Legal Research, Second Edition</em>, is a practical, process-oriented guide to the skills and resources necessary to research Texas law. The book is designed for teaching first-year students, either as a stand-alone text or in conjunction with a research text focusing on federal law. The book is also suitable for use in advanced legal research courses. Others who will find the book useful include practitioners, paralegals, college students, laypersons, and anyone needing a concise handbook on how to find and use Texas legal materials.</p><br /><p>The book begins by explaining the nature and types of legal authority. The process of legal research and control of legal research projects are described in the first chapter, with an emphasis on the integral nature of legal research and legal analysis. These concepts are revisited and reinforced throughout the book. The second chapter explains basic principles underlying legal research, factors to consider in choosing whether to search online or in print, and techniques to add power and precision to legal research. Since students often use online research tools from the beginning of their studies, the second chapter also introduces online searching techniques and principles. Research using print and online resources is explained for each type of legal resource throughout the book.</p><br /><p>The order of coverage of types of legal authority has been substantially changed in the second edition, in order to track the author’s recommended research process. Secondary materials are now addressed in chapter 3, followed by chapters devoted to the resources and techniques of constitutional research, statutory research, legislative history research, administrative agency law research, and case law research. The second edition adds an entirely new chapter on Texas local government law research. The historical and governmental roots of Texas legal resources are traced for each type of primary law. Updating techniques are explained in context for each type of legal material and a chapter is devoted to the use of online citators. An appendix explains the basics of legal citation, the use of the <em>Greenbook</em> and the <em>Bluebook</em>, special rules of Texas citation, and the <em>ALWD Guide to Legal Citation</em>. The second edition contains a new appendix discussing techniques for searching directly in the online case databases included in Westlaw, Lexis Advance, and Bloomberg Law.</p><br /><p>Most chapters contain tables with step-by-step guides to research in particular types of legal resources, as well as summaries of other critical information. Screenshots and images of research materials are included to illustrate the lessons of the text. For each type of resource, research in federal law is addressed following the discussion of research in Texas law. </p><br /><p>This book is part of the Legal Research Series, edited by Suzanne E.

Tout comme en droit pénal, la récidive constitue une circonstance aggravante en droits de la concurrence (de l’Union et de ses États membres) : elle peut entraîner une majoration de la sanction – l’amende –, parce que, schématiquement, une nouvelle infraction a été commise parle même auteur. Certes simple dans son énoncé, la récidive ne va pas toutefois sans soulever des questions quant à ses conditions posées par les juges de l’Union – in rem, in personam et pro tempore –, à la lumière de certains droits nationaux de la concurrence, notamment. La récidive suscite également des questionnements, de plus en plus saillants, quant à la légalité de son régime en droits de la concurrence à l’aune de bon nombre de principes généraux du droit. Ces questionnements tiennent à la légalité et à la personnalité de la peine ainsi qu’aux exigences de respect des droits de la défense des sociétés et de motivation des décisions de la Commission et des autorités nationales de la concurrence. L’ouvrage synthétise les questions essentielles soulevée par la récidive en droits de la concurrence et comprend l’étude de ses conditions tout en portant un regard critique, nuancé et prospectif tenant à leur légalité matérielle et procédurale.

Le droit européen tient désormais une place de plus en plus importante comme source du droit des médias, directement par lui-même et/ou par l’intermédiaire des droits nationaux et le contrôle et l’influence qu’il exerce sur eux. Compte tenu du rôle (politique, économique, social, culturel, de divertissement…) joué par la communication et les médias, le « droit européen des médias » appelle l’attention et suscite l’intérêt.<br /><br />Comme les droits nationaux, le droit européen des médias trouve une part de sa justification et de son unité dans son objet ou son champ d’application que sont les « médias » et toutes les formes de communication « publique ».<br /><br />Au regard de l’inévitable et sans doute souhaitable dimension transnationale ou transfrontière qui est aujourd’hui celle des médias, un droit national apparaît insuffisant, inefficace et inadapté. Dans les espaces européens (de l’Union européenne et du Conseil de l’Europe) au moins, cela conduit à chercher à élaborer un droit commun européen. Supérieur à celui de chacun des États, un tel droit devrait permettre la libre circulation des médias et de leurs contenus (information d’actualité, connaissances et documentation en tous genres, divertissement…), tout en assurant (autant que possible, mais cela n’est pas toujours vérifié !), de manière harmonisée, le respect de droits apparemment opposés ou concurrents et qui méritent, eux aussi, une égale attention et protection.<br /><br />Par « droit européen des médias », est considéré celui qui (sous forme de dispositions textuelles et de décisions rendues par les juridictions : Cour européenne des droits de l’homme et Cour de justice) émane des deux structures ou institutions que sont le Conseil de l’Europe et l’actuelle Union européenne. L’harmonisation européenne des droits des médias nationaux doit ou devrait contribuer à donner plus de force et de réalité au droit, à renforcer les libertés autant que la responsabilité. Les unes ne vont pas sans l’autre !<br /><br />Avant tout, il convenait de fournir ici, de manière inévitablement sélective, la documentation (textes et jurisprudence) relative au « droit européen des médias ». Dispersée, elle était, jusquelà, difficilement accessible et exploitable. Seules les sources brutes permettent d’avoir une pleine connaissance et compréhension du droit en cause et de porter sur lui, après analyse et réflexion ainsi rendues possibles, une juste appréciation.

El libro que el lector tiene en sus manos es de la autoría de Massimo La Torre, profesor italiano, nacido en Mesina en el seno de una familia de juristas. Su padre ejerció la abogacía y sirvió en la resistencia italiana contra el fascismo. Fue educado dentro de la tradición humanística –en un Liceo Classico– que incluyó el estudio del griego y del latín así como una sólida formación literaria. Cursó tanto la Licenciatura en Derecho como la Licenciatura en Ciencia Política en su Mesina natal. De esta época destaca el magisterio recibido de los profesores Rodolfo Di Stefano y Vincenzo Tomeo. Después de ejercer ante los tribunales y trabajar en el Archivo Estatal de Bolonia, se doctoró en el Instituto Universitario Europeo de Florencia con una tesis sobre Karl Larenz y la doctrina jurídica nacionalsocialista alemana bajo la supervisión de Gunther Teubner. Su itinerario profesional e intelectual lo ha llevado por un número considerable de centros de estudio universitarios: Graz, Edimburgo, Carlos III de Madrid, Münster, Estrasburgo, Lisboa, Hull, Catanzaro, entre otros. Desde mi punto de vista, el ambiente jurídico en el que estuvo inmerso durante su infancia así como la educación humanística recibida marcaron fuertemente su sensibilidad, su carácter. Ambos hechos, pienso también, son fundamentales para comprender su trabajo y pueden encontrarse reminiscencias claras de ello a lo largo de estas páginas.

<p><em>Mississippi Legal Research</em> guides readers through finding and using the various sources of Mississippi law. The first of its kind, it is designed to introduce law students to the process of legal research, but anyone who needs to research current and historical legal issues—practitioners, paralegals, librarians, college students, and other lay people—will find it useful. Sample pages and screen shots, interspersed throughout the text, help clarify complex ideas.</p><br /><p><em>Mississippi Legal Research</em> succinctly explains the ways in which constitutions, statutes, legislative history, judicial opinions, administrative regulations, and municipal charters and ordinances are published, accessed, and verified, in print and digital formats. Additional chapters describe the research process, legal analysis, secondary sources of law, such as encyclopedias and treatises, and practitioner materials. The sources of federal law, other states’ law, and the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians are also highlighted.</p><br /><p>Print and online research strategies and techniques are integrated throughout the book. Important subscription services, including Westlaw, Lexis, and Bloomberg Law, are thoroughly covered, but the many excellent free Web-based tools now available to legal researchers also receive special mention.</p><br /><p>This book is part of the Legal Research Series, edited by Suzanne E. Rowe, Director of Legal Research and Writing, University of Oregon School of Law.</p>

<p style="border:none;<br />padding:0in;"> </p><br /><p><em>New York Legal Research</em> provides an alternative to the excellent, but often lengthy, legal research books that take a bibliographic approach to this dynamic lawyering skill. The goal of the third edition is to explore concisely both the sources of New York state law and the process of conducting research using those sources. New to the third edition is a greater emphasis on online sources and performing online research.</p><br /><p>The book begins with an overview of the legal research process and an introduction to research techniques using online media. Then the book turns to secondary sources, recognizing these sources as the entry point for most new research projects. Next, <em>New York Legal Research</em> addresses primary authority, with chapters dedicated to case law, enacted law (statutes, constitutions, local law, and court rules), and administrative law. Additional chapters cover legislative history, free and commercial updating tools, legal ethics research, New York City law, and research strategies and organization. An appendix explains legal citation by New York courts following the New York Law Reports Style Manual.</p><br /><p>Most chapters contain outlines with step-by-step guidance for research in various types of legal resources. The book also includes short excerpts and screen shots from important sources. Discussions of legal analysis are brief but are included as necessary to show the crucial connection between research and analysis. While the concentration of <em>New York Legal Research</em> is state research, concise descriptions of federal resources are included throughout.</p><br /><br /><p>This book is part of the Legal Research Series, edited by Suzanne E. Rowe, Director of Legal Research and Writing, University of Oregon School of Law.</p><br /><br /><p>“What I found most valuable in these introductory chapters was the description of how to access New York materials on Westlaw, Google Scholar, and government websites...Another important aspect of New York law is the distinction between consolidated and unconsolidated laws. The book explains in detail the distinction and where to find the statutes, highlighting the main sources of New York's consolidated and unconsolidated laws...<em>New York Legal Research</em> provides a solid examination of both the sources of New York law and the legal research process. A picture is worth a thousand words, and embedded within the chapters are screenshots and tables that illuminate the text. When comparing this book with other titles on the subject, <em>New York Legal Research</em> is the only title that focuses its discussion on connecting the sources of law in New York with the practice of conducting legal research. That makes <em>New York Legal Research</em> an essential addtion to any law library that supports the study or practice of law in New York.” — Kathleen Darvil, Law Library Journal, Volume 108:2</p>
