This course aims to cultivate analytical, research and writing skills through problem based learning. The approach will be to use actual fact situations to hone such skills as: identifying legal issues; formulating research strategies and methodologies; efficiently using relevant secondary sources; usefully integrating print resources with electronic resources; analyzing and synthesizing applicable primary sources; applying critical thinking; and writing clearly and effectively.

The development of the skills in this course will assist students in their academic course work and prepare them for their professional careers.
