PL 491 - Capstone Project

This is an integrative course that allows students to identify a real-world legal problem and provide a recommended solution based upon legal research, case law and legislative history. Each student selects a topic or project, with instructor approval, and completes a paper which documents the process, including the use of industry-standard research methods. The final written work product may be in the form of a scholarly article of publishable quality, a seminar-type paper, a model bill and the supporting memorandum, a draft complaint or petition and supporting memorandum, the formal documents and supporting memorandum for a transactional project, or a brief (on the merits or as an amicus), to name just a few examples.
