LAW 3708 - Advanced Legal Research


This course focuses on practical techniques and strategies of legal research and provides an in-depth view of American legal information with some emphasis upon current computer-assisted legal research. The goals of this course are: (1) to teach students to evaluate legal information sources effectively, to formulate a rational research methodology that maximizes efficiency, and to implement the strategy through concrete steps; (2) to expand students’ skills in using the primary American legal sources; (3) to introduce students to American legal sources in specialized subject areas; (4) to develop skills in compiling legislative histories; and (5) to familiarize students with the legal and non-legal information resources and electronic databases that are becoming increasingly important to the legal community. Students will learn how to formulate a research plan based on legal analysis of issues, how to find the most relevant information resources available, and how to integrate technology into the final work product.
