The course fulfills the upper-level research requirement and is designed to equip students with the knowledge and practical skills necessary for effective legal research. The course will review the basic concepts of research that students learned in Research, Writing, and Advocacy I and II and introduce them to new authorities, sources, and tools. New material will include legislative history, administrative law, court rules, rules of professional responsibility, factual investigation, and specialized treatises and databases. Students will practice their research skills via simulated problems using a variety of legal research resources. Each section will have a different focus, on either business and commercial law issues, criminal law issues, or family law issues.
