The Law Library Faculty at the Texas Tech University School of Law offer a nationally-recognized extracurricular program in legal research. The Excellence in Legal Research (ELR) Program provides students hands-on training in the skills, sources, and strategies that they will need for performing effective legal research throughout their legal careers. In order to meet the requirements of the Program, a student must complete a minimum of 20 hours of legal research instruction and assessment.
Students may begin the program as early as the second semester of their first year of law school. Classes are offered every semester, as well as during the summer session.
