Abstract:     
In this, the last of six articles, the different pieces of individual judicial opinions are identified and explained. Also discussed are the types of opinions that may be issued by a given court and the legal effect of each type. The article concludes by discussing how researchers can insure that they have located judicial opinions, statutes, and regulations that are still recognized as current law by the courts and other branches of government.
