The Certificate in Legal Research program, taught by the librarians here at the Sturm College of Law, provides students with the research skills necessary for success in class, internships, externships, summer associate positions, or for your first position as a new attorney. The certificates are a great resume builder and topic of discussion during the interview process.
Classes are open to any DU Law student interested in improving research and practice-oriented skills. Topics cover a wide range of areas and provide an excellent grounding as you begin to combine the knowledge gained in school with the actual practice of law. Students are free to attend as few or as many classes as desired and are under no obligation to complete the requirements for a certificate. However, to receive any of the certificates, students must attend classes and complete assignments as per the certificate requirements.
There are three certificates offered through the program:
1) Certificate in Basic Legal Research
2) Certificate in Specialized Legal Research
3) Certificate in International Legal Research
