[ Academia ] as a Key Elective : Every academic needs to know how to formulate an interesting and tractable research question, the answer to which will make a contribution to the existing academic literature. Independent research projects give students the opportunity to develop ideas and work on their own scholarship.
General course Description:
An opportunity for third-year students to engage in original research and to prepare a substantial written-work product on the scale of a law review article. The thesis topic should be chosen no later than two weeks after the beginning of the seventh term of law study and may be chosen during the sixth term. The topic is subject to the approval of the thesis supervisor, who may be any member of the Law School faculty under whose direction the student wishes to write the thesis and who is willing to assume the responsibility therefor. An oral defense of the thesis before members of the faculty, including the thesis supervisor, will be conducted late in the student's ninth academic term. Acceptance of the thesis for credit requires the approval of the thesis supervisor and one or more other members of the faculty who will be selected by the supervisor. Satisfactory completion of the senior thesis will satisfy graduation requirements to the extent of (a) 5 - 8 units of credit and (b) two research courses. See SLS Student Handbook for requirements and limitations.
Course Style: A Substantive course teaches the law, theory, and policy in a particular area of law
