This course is designed to introduce students to the three stages of the legal educational experience: pre-law school and law school, post-law school careers, and the legal environment as a whole. Students understand the purpose and procedure of the LSAT, learn to plan critically for law school and subsequent careers, develop basic electronic legal research skills, and gain exposure to real legal fields. Students spend as much time working on this course outside of the classroom as inside it. The course emphasizes inter-related research activities and culminates in a major research paper.
Prerequisites: Junior or Senior standing
