LAW - 727E Advanced Legal Research
This course explains the structure and use of legal materials. The goal is research proficiency, especially in a virtual law library. Each student is responsible for using the various online research tools, theories, and strategies presented by the instructors to complete weekly exercises and compile a comprehensive research memorandum/guide. Hard copy and electronic resources will be compared to explore their relative strengths and weaknesses, so students can also expect to sharpen their research skills with traditional print materials. A 1-unit version of this course may be offered in the Fall or Spring term for students on Law Review or on the Environmental Law Journal (ELJ). This course is open only to upper division JD students. This course counts toward completion of the Upper Division Writing Requirement.
