Course Description

Legal Research and Writing for LL.M.’s is a two-credit course that is recommended for LL.M. students who do not hold a degree from a U.S. law school. The course has several complementary objectives: exposing students to the most widely used techniques of U.S. legal research; teaching students to locate primary legal materials from electronic research sources; helping students identify authority that is relevant to a given fact situation; strengthening students' skills in U.S. legal analysis; and improving students' English language writing skills. The course builds on writing and analytical skills students have developed in the U.S. legal system.
