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 4, and it is due at the beginning of class on October 11.
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:
Here is the research assignment. We’ll be using Fastcase in class to begin the assignment, which you’ll finish on your own and turn in at the beginning of class on October 4. I’ll give out Fastcase IDs in class an give a brief introduction to how to use it for online research. If you miss class today, please get in touch with me as soon as possible so I can get you started.
