  Dear Students: 

 I think the library exercise proved propitious and we are going in the right direction with the annotated bibliography exercise. You have found useful secondary sources and I congratulate you on your efforts. Next, we need to work on explaining how you decide which sources are the most authoritative, relevant, up-to-date, and worth-mentioning in an annotated bibliography. 

 Please start your first weekly assignment, and feel free to let me see your draft(s). The assignment is two-fold and contains both the thought-process behind it and the end result: the annotations. You will explain how you found the legal scholarship and then create annotations of chosen treatises and other book-format legal scholarship. Because of its complexity at such an early stage in the semester, it will be due Feb 4th instead of January 28th. There is no weekly assignment due on January 28th. 

 See you next week at 10 AM in our regular class at Pratt. We will talk about secondary sources as finding aid tools, research tools, and legal scholarship (e.g., treatises).
