290: Advanced Legal Research

Credit Hours




Intended for those interested in sharpening their legal research skills. In addition to reviewing basic legal research, the course covers federal and Illinois legislative history, administrative research, looseleaf services, litigation materials and other research sources, using both traditional materials and computerized resources when appropriate. The student is expected to complete a series of weekly library exercises, and one or more extended research projects or writing assignments. The number and subject of the research projects will be determined by the instructor, as will the option of requiring a midterm exam. (Grant, LeBaron, Scott, Yelin)
