(LAWO-3094) - 6 UNITS

During the second year, JSD students start shifting their focus to writing the dissertation. The dissertation can be either a single manuscript, or a collection of three articles suitable for law journal publication. JSD students write their dissertation under the direct supervision of a full-time member of the law school?s doctrinal faculty. Through the dissertation, students are expected to make a substantial contribution to legal scholarship by raising, expanding upon or answering important questions and exercising independent critical ability in making the argument.
