The one class is teaching me about research. While I am seasoned in research of a normal variety (that is all I did my last year while getting my BA), legal research is different.
Not only do I have to learn the lingo, I have to learn the hierarchy of authority and what resources provide that authority, how to find it and how to read the findings.
The other class is jurisprudence and we are learning the various areas of law. For the 10 page paper due week 6 in this class, we have to pick a specialty. This is hard because I have a lot of areas of interest. For the sake of the class, I will just pick one and go with that. I am not stuck to that specialty after the class is over, so I will just pick one that I can work with easily in writing.
Thankfully, though, they have been informative and the instructor is experienced and very easy to work with. He is accommodating and quick to respond to any questions. Such a relief after the computer lab nightmare.
