This course will develop students' research skills in both traditional book-based and computer-assisted legal research. The course will provide an in-depth approach integrating book-based and computerized research in statutes, legislative history and tracking, administrative and executive publications, case finding and verification, secondary sources and indexes, current awareness and topical reporters, government documents, international law, and nonlegal research. The course will provide extensive hands-on experience with computer-assisted research in LEXIS, WESTLAW, CD-Rom sources, and the Internet. Efficient research strategies will be developed through the preparation of several research memoranda. Specialized topical research will be addressed by the preparation of a research guide by each student in a subject area of interest to that particular student. Students who are taking or have already taken Advanced Legal Writing and Research or a course on legal literature taught at the School of Library and Information Science may not take this course.
