Writing a Paper this Semester?
Here are some common questions and answers:
- How do I go about selecting my paper topic?
Current awareness sources like topical newsletters (e.g. BNA reports) and legal newspapers (e.g. National Law Journal) are very useful. See also our Journal Staff Legal Research Guide for Tools for Finding a Topic.
