Thinking ahead for the fall? Four different legal research courses will be on offer this fall semester:
- advanced legal research;
- foreign and international law research;
- intellectual property law research; and
- Texas law research.
These all qualify as professional skills courses that are short, seven-week courses for one pass/fail credit to help prepare you for practice.
The general advanced legal research course, taught by Matt Steinke, Lecturer and Assistant Director for Public Services, expands upon skills taught during the first year of law school. The other courses are intended for those who have a particular interest in or expect to practice in these legal jurisdictions. Jonathan Pratter will teach the foreign and international law legal research class and will bring his many years of experience researching in this area. Stephen Wolfson, Lecturer and Reference Librarian, takes up the specialized topic of intellectual property that would be helpful for anyone interested in copyright, patent, and trademark. Jane O’Connell, Lecturer and Deputy Director, will teach the Texas law research course that is useful for any law student planning to stay and practice in Texas. Check out the library’s website for more information.
