About the Program
As law firms grow in size and become more specialized, there is a growing need for researchers able to investigate legal issues and the underlying factual issues of litigation and transactional law. It is hard to imagine a discipline where legal issues don’t regularly arise. The graduate certificate in Legal Information and Scholarly Communication will give you the necessary foundation to work in businesses, government agencies, archives, and libraries that deal with legal information.
The certificate requires 18 credit hours. Nine credits will consist of required core courses plus a required internship of 3 credits. The remaining 6 credits will be chosen from electives approved by the School of Information.
