The primary goal of this course is to give an overview of the research universe that will make the transition from law school to law practice easier and more productive. In order to give students a framework for developing successful research strategies, we will be exploring the history of legal materials and examining the structure and use of the various research tools. Students will be working with all types of research books and systems, from the earliest nominative reporters to the newest online research tools.
