As part of a required graduate seminar, graduate students enrolled in both the thesis- and course-based LLM programs are required to prepare annotated bibliographies of literature relevant to their thesis or major paper research. These annotated bibliographies are prepared at the end of the students' first three months in the program, and as such, do not cover all the literature in any one area and must be viewed as works in progress. Nevertheless, we hope scholars and lawyers working in the relevant areas will find these documents a useful tool.
