Legal Research: Animal Law

This course provides strategies for conducting legal research with an emphasis on Animal Law resources. Designed to prepare law students for research in practice, clerkships, and law school, this course will build upon the research skills students have previously acquired. In addition to federal and state legal resources, the course will introduce students to additional research tools focusing on local and international materials as well as strategies for successful interdisciplinary research. The course will explore the different approaches needed for policy and planning research versus transactional and litigation-related research. Students learn through a combination of lectures, graded assignments, in-class exercises and other activities.
