  • Description: This course approaches legal research through an Animal Law lens, and is designed to build upon the research skills students have previously acquired in order to more thoroughly prepare them to undertake legal research in practice, academic, and collateral fields. In doing so, we will both explore research logistics (e.g. resources; strategies) as well as research theory (e.g. legal research as a communicative endeavor; goals of research in within the law). Students can expect exposure to research techniques at a variety of jurisdictional and interdisciplinary levels. Students in this course will learn through a combination of lectures, graded assignments, in-class exercises and other activities. This course meets once every two weeks for approximately two hours a session.
