Instructional Objectives for this activity:
Prioritize how to use a computer search query, and use of search connectors for updating legal research electronically
Finding information on a computer, in a database, or on a website, requires a search query, which is a combination of a set of words and terms that identify the information desired.
For this assignment, again using one or both of the two free legal search engines, Freelaw and the Legal Information Institute, conduct a search query for the following terms:
- Search and seizure
- Collateral estoppel
- Eminent Domain
- Re-zoning and Euclidean Zoning
List at least five cases from the results of each of the above terms.
Submit an essay that adheres to the following guidelines:
- Your essay should be a minimum of 1 page long, (counting body text only, not title or reference pages) in double-spaced, one-inch margins on all sides.
- You will be assessed on the rationale you use in addressing the question/issue posted, and how well you justify your argument regarding this issue.
- Your response must be thought provoking, have well developed ideas and/or opinions, and should reference any supporting material from the text, lecture, or other sources you have used to complete the assignment.
