The emphasis of this course is on writing specific legal documents such as letters, pleadings, briefs and memoranda. You will build on the instruction presented in Part I and further develop the skills of legal research. Part II also includes visits to the law library. Prerequisite: Legal Research and Writing I
In Legal Research and Writing II, students will build upon the foundation provided in the earlier course (Legal Research and Writing I) and deal in more detail with background research, specific fact research and validation research. Also, the students will write two (2) Memoranda's of Law in this part of the course. The first Memoranda will be based upon legal research provided to the student and test their understanding and writing skills. The second Memoranda of law will require library research plus writing and understanding skills as if it were a problem presented by an attorney employer.
