PLST 151 Legal Research and Writing I (5)
An introduction to developing effective methods of legal research and writing: Students will participate in a series of exercises that include finding statutes and case decisions in books and through computer-assisted legal research. Students will focus on identifying legal issues and validating cases and statutes while drafting letters, case briefs, and an objective memorandum. This is the first of two required legal research and writing courses.
Prerequisite: Assessment at college-level English and reading.
