I noticed a drafting error for next week’s class calendar, so I’ve posted a revised course syllabus. The topics for the next few classes will be adjusted as follows (due dates for assignments and tests are unaffected):
- November 3: Property law
- November 5: Wills, estates, and elder law
- November 10: Family law

Use Fastcase to find the answers to the questions in the research assignment. Because part of what you need to learn in this class is efficient workflow, do not print out the document and write the answers by hand. Instead, download the document, rename it with a filename that includes your own last name, and type the answers into the document itself. Do not print until you have completed the assignment and are ready to turn it in. We will work on this assignment in class on October 1, and it is due at the beginning of class on October 6.
You can download a guide to Fastcase Legal Research for Paralegals (again, in the interest of efficient workflow, do not print the guide; refer to it on screen using the Table of Contents and search function to find what you need), and tutorials to explaining how to use Fastcase are available at http://www.fastcase.com/video/ In particular, you will need the following tutorials:
