The J.S.D. and LL.M. Legal Scholarship Seminar at Berkeley Law will provide students with a comprehensive understanding of in-depth legal analysis and will guide and support the students in their own research and writing endeavors.

The course will explore the various fields and methodologies of legal scholarship through a series of guest lectures by members of the Berkeley Law faculty most expert in those respective fields and methodologies.

Students will be expected to read, analyze and engage in lively class discussion (with the faculty guest speakers and their fellow classmates) about significant law review articles in the various areas of legal scholarship addressed. Students will also produce weekly reaction papers to the assigned reading as a means of expressing their thoughts, questions and critiques regarding the analysis and argumentation utilized in the course of the law review articles read.

Most importantly, this course is intended to facilitate students’ own endeavors into legal scholarship. For this reason, students will give brief in-class thesis/research question presentations toward the end of the semester on which they will receive input and feedback from the instructor and their fellow classmates.

The seminar is required for all entering J.S.D. and thesis-track LL.M. students. Enrollment limited to J.S.D. and thesis-track LL.M. students.
