Advanced Online Legal Research
Professor Susan Ryan
LL.M Seminar 681 | 1 credit hours
This course will build on the research techniques learned in U.S. Legal Discourse I. It will focus on resources available online, including Lexis, Westlaw and the Internet. The course will prepare students to conduct U.S. legal research either in a legal setting in the United States, or abroad. There will be ample time for questions from the students, so that specific topics of interest to the class can be covered.
The course is graded honors-pass-fail. This class is only open to foreign educated LL.M. students (i.e., those students who do not have a U.S. J.D. degree), and enrollment is limited to a small number of students. Attendance at all classes is mandatory.
