[ Academia ] as a Key Elective : The Legal Studies Workshop provides exposure to current academic writing in a range of fields and close attention to students' own scholarly writing projects.
General course Description:
The Legal Studies Workshop is designed to support students working on a piece legal scholarship with an eye to publication. The course will meet every other week for all three quarters. Students may sign up for one, two or three quarters, and will receive one credit for each quarter they are enrolled. Each session will be devoted to presentations of one or two student works-in-progress. Every student is expected to present his or her own work at least once, and to provide constructive oral feedback on others'. Attendance is mandatory (except of course for extenuating circumstances). Other faculty will participate on an informal basis when their expertise will be helpful for a particular paper. There are no written requirements for the course, and no requirement that the work presented be original to the Workshop. Students may wish to use the Workshop as an opportunity to expand on seminar papers or pursue independent research projects for which they are getting separate credit through one of the research tracks (e.g., directed research, dissertation). Whether students are working on a new project or revising an old, the expectation is that students will develop their topics independent of the course.
Course Style: A Substantive course teaches the law, theory, and policy in a particular area of law
Course Frequency: Offered twice a year
