Students will conduct practice area specific research in the following areas: client background and development; litigation preparation; business and industry trends; and federal and state legislative and regulatory history. Research will be conducted using many online legal research databases for use in their selected practice area and jurisdiction. This 14-week class begins in Spring 1 DL and ends in Spring 2 DL.
