    Stephen R. Elias until his death in late 2011, Stephen R. Elias was a practicing attorney, active Nolo author, and president of the National Bankruptcy Law Project. He was an important part of Nolo for more than 30 years, and was the author or coauthor of many Nolo books, including Bankruptcy for Small Business Owners. Other titles include Special Needs Trusts: Protect Your Child's Financial Future, How to File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, and Legal Research: How to Find and Understand the Law. He was also one of the original authors of Nolo's bestselling WillMaker software. Steve held a law degree from Hastings College of Law and practiced law in California, New York, and Vermont before joining Nolo in 1980. He was featured in such major media as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Good Morning America, 20/20, Money magazine, and more. The blog he began on bankruptcy and foreclosure law continues at Nolo's Bankruptcy & Foreclosure Blog.

    Nolo's legal editors are lawyers who have dedicated themselves to creating books and software that give people legal information in plain English. More than a dozen legal editors, who together have hundreds of year of legal experience, currently work on Nolo products.

    Legal research made simple!

    If you're searching for information in a real or virtual law library as a paralegal, law student, legal assistant, journalist, or lay person, finding and accessing the laws that you need to read can be a challenge. Turn to Legal Research, which outlines a systematic method to find answers and get results.

    In plain, readable English, Attorney Stephen Elias explains, with plenty of examples and instructions, how to:
    . read and understand statues, regulations and cases
    . evaluate cases for their value as precedent
    . use all the basic tools of legal research
    . practice what you've learned with "hands-on, library exercises, as well as hypothetical research problems and solutions
    This easy-to-use and understand book has been adopted as a text in many law schools and paralegal programs. This edition has been condensed to be more readable and includes an expanded discussion on the use of new legal research tools on the web.
