Legal Services Global Industry Guide

  1. 1. Brochure More information from Legal Information Buyer's Guide and Reference Manual 2006 Description: The Legal Information Buyer's Guide & Reference Manual is the leading and most comprehensive consumer guide to legal information in print. The 2006 edition, which updates and replaces the 2005 edition, includes updated information on thousands of legal information products, including reviews of over 1,400 legal treatises and specialty titles (including dozens of new titles). The book contains current bibliographic and pricing information on over 1,600 state primary law and secondary titles, and hundreds of additional products, including federal statutes, state and federal digests, legal encyclopedias, annotated reports, citators, administrative codes, legal newspapers, CD-ROMs, and much more. This book was primarily written to address the needs of the solo practitioner and the attorney in the small or medium-sized law firm operating without a law librarian, but will also serve as a valuable resource in a variety of law, academic and public libraries. It is based on the assumption that while lawyers are highly educated people, sophisticated in their knowledge of the law, they often lack even the most rudimentary understanding of the ways of legal publishing and the marketing techniques which unnecessarily siphon away their hard-earned dollars. It has been estimated that the average lawyer spends more than $4,000 per year on information, a figure greater than that of any other professional and more than six times that of the average doctor. A major portion of that $4,000 is wasted, either because many of the materials are poorly selected, are never or rarely used, are ill suited to the lawyer's specialty, or are overpriced. With the help of this book the average practitioner could reduce his or her expenditures for legal information by 50% without any essential loss of utility or currency. Applied judiciously, the information and strategies presented in this book will save you thousands of dollars in unnecessary expenditures over the course of your legal career. Contents: 1.
