"The purpose of this book is to teach law students, paralegal students, and attorneys the basic skills needed for doing legal research in California. This book differs from other legal research treatises in that it is designed specifically for California practitioners. California primary and secondary sources are discussed in detail, as well as federal primary and secondary authority. Non-California state law sources are discussed only to the extent that they might be encountered by California attorneys and paralegals."--Preface, p. ix.
