Creative Commons Course Book for Course I: Introduction to Legal Sources in U.S. Intelligence Law (1st Edition 2010)
This free course book contains useful background reports on topics relevant to the general subject matter of Course I: Introduction to Legal Sources in U.S. Intelligence Law.
This course book is a compendium of useful explanatory reports explaining the different sources of law in the federal legal system of the United States. While these reports are not specific to the legal sources of US intelligence law, they do address most of the legal sources discussed throughout Course I in other contexts. They are useful for answering a variety of questions students may encounter when first approaching the federal legal framework.
NOTE: This first course book was compiled to aid beginners studying law for the first time. It may therefore seem remedial and less relevant to more experienced students and legal practitioners. Advanced students will find the Course Book for Course III: Statutory Law and Intelligence to be the most useful secondary authority course book we offer. Course Book III serves as a secondary authority companion to our comprehensive primary authority supplement US Intelligence Law: Statutory Supplement (2nd Edition 2013). Together, those two volumes provide students with most of the legal research materials they'll need to master US intelligence law.
