Designed as a "teaching tool rather than a bibliographic compilation of state legal research sources" (p.xviii), "Illinois Legal Research" provides practical instruction primarily to law students. It can also serve as a ready reference tool for practitioners and others interested in researching laws specific to Illinois.
Mark Wojcik, associate professor of law at the John Marshall Law School in Chicago, begins with a quick review of basic legal research methods and gives tips for developing effective and efficient research skills. He transitions into in-depth explanations of Illinois law, covering topics such as constitutions, judicial decisions, statutes and ordinances, administrative law, rules of court, and various types of secondary sources. Wojcik also includes a chapter on citation, comparing the requirements of the ALWD Citation Manual, the Illinois citation rules, and the Bluebook.
