Looking for a Research Topic?

Students are sometimes at a loss regarding a subject on which to draft a paper for a class, writing requirement, independent study, or writing competition. It is beneficial if students write about issues that are of concern to attorneys in practice, but often students are unsure about what those topics might be.

Well, the American Constitution Society for Law & Policy has developed an online searchable database of research topics submitted by practitioners. This database, called ResearchLink, is searchable by practice area such as health care, immigration, housing, Due Process, labor law, international law, etc. In addition, ResearchLink may be used to locate lawyers who are seeking students to conduct research and draft a paper on a particular subject.

Whether you use ResearchLink to locate new and exciting research topics for your own work, or as a resource to connect with employers who have interests similar to yours, ResearchLink is a great website to check out.
