MOOC (Massive Open Online Course)

We have a MOOC titled, “The Global Student’s Introduction to U.S. Law” that is offered to students all over the world (4,000 to 6,000 enrolled last spring). This is probably our largest distance learning group. There are several law librarians that designed the legal research exercises for the course, and that is where students may need help navigating resources. However, MOOC students do not have access to our legal databases that are password protected or tied to the UF Network, since they are not officially enrolled students at UF.


Law Students Conducting Research for Internships, Externships, Summer Jobs

We also help many students in their internships, externships, and summer jobs who require legal research assistance while on the jobs, and a lot of those jobs are in other cities in Florida or even out of state. The students may call us or e-mail us to get help navigating through our legal resources. Students will still have access to all of our legal resources because they are enrolled at the law school and have a Gatorlink account for off-campus network access.

For more resources, please visit: http://guides.law.ufl.edu/LegalResearchHandbook , where you can download a PDF version of the Summer Legal Research Handbook specifically designed to help students prep and refresh their research skills for their summer positions.

Undergraduate Courses

We also provide research assistance for several undergraduate courses pertaining to Pre-Law, such as Constitutional Law and Civil Liberties as well as non-law students from other colleges.
