About "the law"

Researching “the law” on a particular topic is generally a multi-step process that involves checking secondary sources followed by primary sources - statutes, cases, and sometimes, administrative rules or regulations. Very rarely is there a simple answer to a legal question or a single book that will provide the answer.
