   In This Issue...
     Attorneys responding to a Fall 1988 survey reported that keeping current with changes in
   the law is a major challenge they face. Whether the issue is the output of appellate opinions or
   the rapidly shifting complexion of bills wending through the legislative process, staying up-to-
   date requires constant effort. Four features in this issue are crafted to help alleviate this
   burden:
   0 In Keeping Current, a broad range of attorneys skilled in particular areas of the law offer
   their comments on leading resources to consult regarding current developments in those areas;
   * More Than Just Books offers anecdotal insight on the multiple ways in which the
   resources of the Minnesota State Law Library may be tapped to supplement your own library
   and research tools;
   * Concerned with pending legislation? Mike Flanagan offers tips on Tracking Legislative
   Developments through resources of the House, Senate, MSBA, and other organizations;
   a And Kathleen Bedor rounds out coverage of the issue with her review of two new
   publications from R.R. Bowker & Co. which are designed to aid in mastering the fields of
   estate planning and real property law.
   * Is your client's product being knocked off by an unscrupulous competitor? Tony Eggink
   and Gerry Laurie suggest that a remedy is available in the Lanham Act, even when the
   product is not otherwise protected by patent, trademark, or copyright.
   - The annual index to Bench & Bar appears in this issue.
