Legal Research and Writing introduces international LL.M. students to U.S. legal reasoning and practice by examining court opinions, teaching legal research methods, and developing skills of legal writing and oral presentation in the United States. The course emphasizes understanding the U.S. legal system, common law legal reasoning, legal problem solving, and effective written and oral communication of legal analysis. The course includes several written assignments building up to a final writing project of 15 to 19 pages, which satisfies the Capstone Writing Requirement. Students will also make a short oral presentation.

This course is two credits and graded.

Much of the learning in this course involves experiential exercises done in groups during class time. The collaborative aspect of this process greatly enhances student learning. As such, we strongly encourage students to attend class in real-time to the greatest extent possible. Please choose a section that works best for your schedule.
