COURSE DESCRIPTION: These days it’s easy to find information, but it’s not so easy to know that you’re finding the right information and not missing anything. The goal of this course is to develop more effective and focused research skills that will give you confidence that you have the information you need. In classroom exercises and homework assignments, we will learn advanced techniques for using familiar resources such as Google and Westlaw Next, and explore more specialized free and subscription resources in subject areas frequently encountered in legal practice, including case law, statutes, legislative history, administrative law, court procedure, and factual research.

Prerequisites:Legal Research and Writing
Course Requirement:Students will be responsible for weekly research assignments and class participation.
