Legal Research, Writing and Analysis II

Ms. Amy McManus
Fall 2018 - Spring 2019 course
W 7:20pm - 9:20pm in WCC Room 3018
1 classroom credit

Prerequisites: None

Exam Type: No Exam

This course teaches foreign-educated LL.M. students how U.S. lawyers conduct legal research, analyze and frame legal positions, and present their work in writing. It builds on the lectures and work completed in the LRWA I series that occurs during August orientation. During the spring semester, students deepen their research, writing, and analytical skills by engaging in independent legal research, preparing drafts of legal memoranda, and revising their written work in response to instructor feedback.

Note: Enrollment is limited to foreign-educated LL.M. students and is designed specifically for those who wish to qualify for the New York State Bar Exam. This course meets only in the spring and provides one additional credit beyond the LWRA I course taken during orientation.
