The seminar will provide students with a foundation for conducting in-depth legal research and support the students with developing their proposed dissertation project. We will explore the following: different types of research, how to plan a research project, research methodology, and review available organizational tools. Students will also gain a better understanding of what research resources are available on their chosen topics.

Students will have opportunities to discuss their research projects and ideas with the group and participate in constructive discussion and feedback. At the end of the seminar, students will have made progress on developing a research outline for their proposed dissertation project.

The seminar is required for all entering JSD students. Enrollment is limited to JSD students.

This course will have 7 class meetings. To allow for a makeup class because of unforeseen circumstances this course has an automatic make-up class scheduled for the 8th week. Students must be able to attend all 8 scheduled meetings to earn credit.

There will be an additional one-unit class (7 class meetings) in the Spring and it will build upon the themes from the Fall semester.

Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped. The instructor will continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to be dropped.

Exam Notes: (None) Class requires a series of papers, assignments, or presentations throughout the semester
