This article explores the teaching of advanced legal research and writing courses in American law schools. It begins by addressing the need for such courses, followed by a discussion as to why an advanced offering should be an “integrated” course, providing training in both legal research and writing rather than a narrower single-focus course. The article then explores some practical considerations in establishing such a course and offers a model for such a course, based on a curriculum used at Catholic University Law School beginning in 1992.
