LAW 1060 - Introduction to Legal Research & Communication

Description
Introduction to Legal Research and Communication I provides law students with training in legal research (both state and federal), legal citation, and how to be successful in law school. Students who successfully complete Introduction to Legal Research and Communication I will be able to: 1. Demonstrate a working understanding of hierarchy of authority. (A “working understanding” suggests the ability to select appropriate authorities in different factual contexts.) 2. Perform basic research with cases, statutes, and secondary sources. (Note: “Basic research” includes case verification and search strategies.) 3. Properly cite cases, statutes, and secondary sources in both long and short form using a standard guide to legal citation. 4. Properly determine if primary authority is still good law through the use of citator services. 5. Learn skills that are crucial in achieving law school success, to include how to take meaningful notes, successfully manage time, produce effective course reviews, spot relevant issues in essay exams, write successful essay exams, and analyze multiple-choice questions. In addition to the law school skills noted in #5, directly above, research topics covered in the first semester include legal hierarchy, legal citation, research strategy, secondary sources, case law and digests, legislative codes, and citator services. Databases taught will be Westlaw, Lexis Advance, and Bloomberg Law, with expert certification training and testing in Westlaw and Lexis Advanced offered the end of the semester.
