Why it is relevant for ...
[ 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:
The Research Track is for students who wish to carry out a research project of a scope larger than that contemplated for a Senior Thesis. Research Track projects are to be supervised by two or more professors, at least one of whom must be a member of the Law School faculty. At least one faculty member in addition to the supervisors must read the written product of the research, and the student must defend the written work orally before the readers. Students will be admitted to Research Track only if they have a demonstrated capability for substantial independent research, and propose a significant and well-formulated project at the time of application.
Course Style: A Substantive course teaches the law, theory, and policy in a particular area of law
Course Frequency: Offered three times a year
