Advanced Legal Research

D. Holt
2 TBD TBD TBD

Professional Skills Course

Advanced Legal Research is designed to teach “real-world” legal research skills to prepare students for the challenges and expectations they will encounter in legal practice and/or clerkships.  The course will review who publishes legal authority, how it is organized, and how to access it efficiently with particular attention on cost-effective research.  Utilizing current, and emerging, legal research tools and technologies, the course develops research skills with assignments, lectures, and mock legal research exercises which emulate assignments typically given to attorneys new to practice.  The pedagogical goals of this course include: 1) teaching students how to effectively evaluate research sources and use these materials with attention to cost, 2) proficiency working with primary and secondary legal materials (including practice materials such as forms, model documents, and guidelines/checklists), 3) expose students to SEC filings, contract drafting tools, and other transactional materials, 4) locating and utilizing state and federal regulatory materials and 5) staying current within a practice area using awareness tools.  This course is offered online this summer and in the classroom during the fall semester.  Students studying/working abroad over the summer will not have to worry about time zone differences as participation in the course is asynchronous (there will be no scheduled chat forums, etc.).  Exercises for the course will mimic “real-world” research exercises by including mock email memos, responses to client (and supervising attorney) inquiries, and other exercises students will typically encounter in actual legal practice.
