289: Advanced Legal Research: Foreign and International Legal Research

Description

Skills

This course is designed to meet the growing demand for research competency in the fields of foreign, comparative, and international law (FCIL). Students in the class will be introduced to research techniques and resources specific to these fields that will be useful in practice and academic settings. Print and electronic resources will both be discussed, but emphasis will be placed on resources in electronic format. Resources on the WWW and at Loyola will be highlighted, although students will have an opportunity to explore the international and foreign holdings of another local law library. Weekly research exercises and a final project will allow students to apply specific FCIL sources.
