Seminar Instruction

CLL seminars

The research services librarians provide instruction in seminar courses to assist upper class students with researching their paper topics. Writing seminar papers is an excellent way for law students to learn specific resources in a new legal field, including major treatises, looseleaf services, subscription databases, and web sites. Students also learn advanced research techniques in locating journal articles, books, and other scholarly material.

Recent courses in which research services librarians taught research skills include:

Feminist Jurisprudence Immigration and Refugee Law
Asylum and Convention Against Torture Appellate Clinic
Ethical Issues in Criminal Practice
Law and Social Change
History of the Common Law
