Prerequisites Introduction to paper and electronic resources that cover primary and secondary legal materials including case law statutes agency regulations for federal and state jurisdictions and treatises journals restatements and other secondary sources Discusses research plans and develops brief research strategies for hypothetical situations Prerequisites None Justi cation Legal Writing and Research should be separated into two courses with Legal Writing becoming a 2 credit course and Legal Research becoming an independent 1 credit course The rst semester 3 credit Legal Writing course currently comprises two components a 1 credit Legal Research component taught by Debora Person or Tawnya Plumb and a 2 credit Legal Writing component taught by me Jacquelyn Bridgeman or Bob Southard Although there is substantial coordination between the teachers of the Legal Research component and the teachers of the Legal Writing component these two parts of the Legal Writing course are actually two distinct courses with separate pedagogical goals separate assignments separate teachers and separate final grades As it stands now a student receives a single final grade on his or her transcript for the overall Legal Writing and Research course This final grade is determined by combining on a l to 2 ratio the student s final grade in the Legal Research component of the class with the student s final grade in the Legal Writing component of the course This has negative consequences for student performance Their education would be better served by breaking the course into two separate courses 22 University Course Review Committee Meeting 222 October 17 2007 Having separate grades for Legal Research and Legal Writing would provide more information to potential employers One function of grade transcripts is to allow employers to assess the areas of strength and weakness of a particular student The skills taught in the Legal Research component of the course are distinct from the skills taught in the Legal Writing component If the Law School has undertaken the task of separating the teaching of legal research from the teaching of legal writing it makes sense to record two grades so that employers can separately assess the students pro ciency in these two distinct areas The skills of legal writing are distinct from the skills of legal research A student should not be able to get a passing grade in a course called Legal Writing and Research without even attending or doing any work in one of the components of the course For these reasons our rst year curriculum would be improved by reducing LAW 6160 to a 2 credit course on Legal Writing only and creating a separate 1 credit Legal Research course Action Taken Tabled for syllabus and prerequisites 101707 See
