Advanced Legal Research Course Offerings

As you are selecting your courses for the 2018-19 academic year, consider registering for a 1-credit Advanced Legal Research course taught by one of the Moritz College of Law’s reference librarians. Each ALR course is focused on a specialized practice area or jurisdiction, but all will help you to further develop the legal research skills you were introduced to in your LAWI & II courses. The following courses will be taught in next year’s spring semester:
  • Business and Tax Legal Research (taught by Ingrid Mattson) provides an introduction to business and tax related materials as well as training and advanced research strategies for finding and effectively using these materials for legal research. Topics covered include business forms, company filings and SEC research, and foreign and international business research. In-class work will include working through research problems to resolve legal question.
  • Advanced Legal Research: Litigation and ADR (taught by Stephanie Ziegler) focuses on finding and using materials related to litigation or ADR practice, covering formbooks, court rules, trial technique, arbitration rules and decisions, as well as research strategies and resource evaluation.
Finally, for those of you staying in Columbus over the summer, consider taking Advanced Legal Research: Ohio (taught by Stephanie Ziegler), which covers a wide variety of Ohio-specific legal resources.
