Researchers from Columbia Medical School and Hofstra University School of Law will be conducting a short research study on the development of legal reasoning skills by law students at the Law School on Thursday, April 27 and Friday, April 28. These researchers are seeking volunteer subjects for this study: second-year law students who have not taken a clinic course; third-year law students who have taken a clinic course; and third-year students who have not taken a clinic.

 

In this study, you will be given a short problem and asked certain questions about it. These responses will be tape-recorded. The entire session for each student should take no longer than 30 minutes. Each participant in the study will receive $25 in compensation.

 

This study is completely anonymous. Responses will be kept in strict confidence, although generalized (anonymous) data may be submitted for publication to an appropriate professional journal or potential grant sponsor (as preliminary data) at a later date. Subjects will NOT be graded on this problem. This study will not affect the Law SchoolÕs or any professorÕs assessment of the subjectsÕ abilities. All the tape recordings will be stored in a secure location with no identifying information.

 

If you are willing to participate, please complete the attached form and sign up for a time with Barbara Lawson in the Kane Center.

 

If you would like more information or have any questions about this study, please contact Professor Stefan H. Krieger at Hofstra University School of Law: <lawshk@hofstra.edu>.
