Recently, Professor Betsy Fajans and I conducted a workshop for new members of the Brooklyn Journal of International Law. Professor Fajans’ half-hour presentation about selecting a topic and writing an article will benefit any student who recently joined the staff of a BLS legal journal or review. I have asked the circulation staff to place five DVDs of Professor Fajans’ presentation on Course Reserve. Through the library’s circulation desk, a BLS student can check out this DVD overnight.
The links to my handouts describing sources to select and to develop an international law-oriented topic are:
public-copy-of-bjil-finding-articles-books-20081 (Finding an Article Topic)
public-copy-of-bjil-topic-selection-and-development-2008 (Developing an Article Topic)
Note: Only faculty, students and administrators of Brooklyn Law School can implement the proxy instructions for off-campus access to BLS subscription databases.
In September, Professor Fajans and a member of our library staff will conduct a similar workshop for BLS students who plan to write seminar papers. I will announce the upcoming date/time through this blog.
