Advanced Legal Research: Electronic ResearchThis skills course will focus on the use of electronic resources in conducting legal research in a real life environment. We will examine the cost effective means of preforming legal research; explore the advanced searching methods for both Lexis-Nexis and Westlaw and examine the other online materials and their use.
This is designed as a skills course; the students will complete a series of graded research assignments both during class and outside of class. They will maintain a research diary which records their research process and critically analyses of their research process.
