Adv Leg Res: Res in Global Law Practice

Law 267U






ALR: Research in Global Law Practice is a specialized legal research class designed for students who have an interest not only in expanding their research skills in U.S. Law but also in gaining research skills in foreign and international law. The course will situate students in a law firm practice environment where they will be "representing" clients who have legal problems and questions involving foreign and international legal regimes. Students will learn how to locate and evaluate secondary sources for researching foreign and domestic law and then will learn how to locate primary sources of law for both domestic and foreign regimes. This course will teach students how to evaluate information they find, particularly for foreign legal regimes, and issues of authenticity, translation quality, and availability will be discussed.

This course will address the fundamental research concepts covered in other Advanced Legal Research (ALR) courses but will do so through a simulation of students working in a law practice environment where they represent clients with legal problems involving the laws of other nations. Students enrolled in this ALR course would not be permitted to enroll in any other ALR course.
