This course will provide students with experience using key research strategies and resources in the following areas of public interest law: criminal law (from both the prosecution and defense perspectives), housing law (landlord-tenant, fair housing, and foreclosure defense), Medicare and Medicaid law, consumer law, public benefits law, environmental law, immigration law and civil rights law. Both print and electronic materials will be explored, with an emphasis on electronic resources when possible. This course will be particularly useful for students who are considering a career in an area of public interest law and want exposure to several areas in one course.
