Legal Research is an essential part of practicing law and one of the seven student learning outcomes identified by the UNM School of Law to further it's mission. To become proficient in legal research requires continual practice. As 1Ls you will learn basic legal research skills in Elements of Legal Argumentation (ELA) and Introduction to Legal Research. You will further develop them as 2Ls in Applied Legal Research, and practice them in seminars, externships, and Clinic.
