This course is designed to provide students with a more detailed examination of the legal research and writing skills essential for success in the legal profession. Students will build upon the basic knowledge and skills introduced in the PLEG 135 course to further develop their legal research, writing, and analysis abilities. Students will continue to engage in guided hands-on learning activities to research legal issues, synthesize cases, frame legal arguments, analyze legal problems and draft appropriate legal writings, but the process will result in more independent work-product. Students will develop a deeper proficiency towards using both traditional and electronic research tools to complete the assigned tasks.
*This course is part of a Paralegal certificate package.
