LAW 726 - Advanced Research I


Advanced Research Techniques I is a 1-credit course that introduces students to a variety of print and electronic research sources over a four-week period. Students may attend four 2-hour presentations over a two week period, and must complete four research assignments. Students may enroll in ART I or ART II or both. ART I is not a prerequisite for ART II. Advanced Research Techniques I develops skills in researching secondary and primary sources in U.S. Law. Students will learn how to efficiently research treatises and journals, proposed and enacted legislation, agency regulations and documents, legislative and administrative history, and court and agency decisions. Both subscription legal databases and free topical websites are emphasized.
