Research for Law Practice Class
The law librarians teach a one-credit, pass-fail advanced legal research course.
This course uses an asynchronous, online format.
Topics covered include primary and secondary legal resources, developing an appropriate research strategy, and advanced searching skills.
Students gain exposure to the use of both litigation and transactional practice materials, current awareness and alerting services, free internet resources, and emerging technologies such as legal analytics.
The emphasis of the class is on an in-depth understanding of resources that are available on Westlaw and Lexis Advance; however, students will learn to use other electronic research products like Cheetah, HeinOnline, and Bloomberg Law.
