Required Course

LAW 506

Legal research has two purposes: (1) to educate yourself on a new subject; and (2) to find legal authority for your position. Researching legal issues effectively is at the heart of good lawyering. In this course, students learn how to use research tools to locate important cases, relevant statutes and regulations, helpful treatises and useful law review articles. Problem-solving is the goal, and students learn through hands-on experience.
