International legal research, whether for professional or academic purposes, relies on materials and methods that are quite different from those required for domestic legal research. In particular, primary historical, governmental, and journalistic sources provide much of the source material for research in this field. This workshop will offer an introduction to methods of researching public international law in the library and through public sources (including FOIA requests), foreign source materials, and online resources. We meet two hours per week. Evaluation will be based on attendance and research exercises.
