At the annual meeting of Scribes--The American Society of Legal Writers, a special award was given to Carolina Academic Press for its leadership in legal writing and legal research texts. I was happy to see Keith Sipe, the publisher, receive that award for his groundbreaking vision in publishing (and for keeping research books and casebooks reasonably priced).
Carolina Academic Press will soon be unveiling a new book (expected in November or thereabouts) on international legal research. It's called, not surprisingly, "International Law Legal Research" and is authored by Prof. Anthony S. Winer (William Mitchell College of Law), Mary Ann E. Archer (former Associate Director for Public Services at the Law Library of William Mitchell College of Law), and Lyonette Louis-Jacques (Foreign and International Law Librarian at the University of Chicago Law School). It's the first volume of a new international legal research series that Carolina Academic Press will publish.
Here's a link with more information about the International Law Legal Research book (including how to pre-order copies and review copies). Law schools with classes in international law legal research will greatly appreciate this book and schools without such courses will find that they now have materials that will allow them to offer a new course. Students competing in international law moot court competitions such as the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition will also find a great many useful tips in this book.
