BUS L 470 Research in Business Law and Public Policy (3 cr.) In this three-hour
independent study course, students are required to write a 30–35 page research paper
on a legal studies topic of their choice. This class is designed to build on the
analytical thinking and legal analysis skills students have acquired in earlier
business law courses. Additionally, students will become familiar with the diverse
legal research sources located within the law school. Students will be expected
to learn how to do research by using both legal books and electronic sources. Information
gained from these sources will be used in preparing the research paper that should
help hone the students’ writing skills and lead to clearer and more persuasive writing.
Students will also be expected to demonstrate expertise in legal research and legal
citation. Toward that end, the research paper will meet the general format of a
law review article.
