This is the law school's independent research course. Law 896 can be taken by anyone after the first year. It may be taken twice. In order to enroll in the course, you must have the approval of a sponsoring professor and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. Forms are available on the Law Intranet (under “Student Resources” / "Forms") or from the Registrar's Office. Students who plan to take this course must present a completed prospectus about their research and a signed approval form before they will be allowed to sign up for the course. The Associate Dean will not normally approve proposals submitted after the first day of class. A paper 25 pages or more in length, exclusive of footnotes, is required. This course may be used to satisfy the Substantial Writing Requirement, but not in a student's final semester of study at the College of Law.
