Boley Blog: Enroll in a 1-Credit or 2-Credit Research Course this Spring!

by Mari Cheney on 2020-12-10T12:22:00-08:00 | Comments

This Spring, you have the opportunity to take either (or both!) Advanced Legal Research or Legal Research: Administrative Law by three fantastic teaching librarians.

Both classes will be held on Zoom. ALR is two credits and will meet on Tuesday at 10:05-Noon. It will be co-taught by your Boley law librarians Jim Kite and Meredith Kostek. 

Legal Research: Administrative Law is one credit and will meet on Thursday at 10-11:25am. This class will be taught by adjunct Dwight Mears, an alum of L&C Law, and author of The Medal of Honor. Dwight was a reference assistant at Boley during law school and has since attended library school. Welcome back, Dwight! 

Why are advanced legal research classes important? One former student says, "Among other skills, ALR will arm you with the ability to conduct more focused searches by structuring your queries and utilizing the advanced tools in open source and proprietary databases. It will also teach you to understand the process of rulemaking, and also how to gather the equivalent of legislative history for government regulations."  Another former student says, "This is one of the most valuable classes I took in law school." 

These research classes help you get practice-ready! Questions? Let us know! Chat or email us at
