continue to enhance the way information is created, shared and managed, today's communication professional has to be digitally schooled in order to take advantage of these new opportunities. Northwestern students are effective users of advanced technologies, including RSS feeds, information graphics, and interactive tools that are shaping the future media landscape.

With the proliferation of global media and the evolution of digital technologies, communication has emerged as one of the most important and dynamic industries in the world. From mobile communication and wireless technology to the growth of online and specialist media, the relationship between communication, technology and society is continuing to evolve. At Northwestern University in Qatar, students learn what it takes to create, inform and connect in this exciting new world of global communication. Northwestern University in Qatar offers two academic programs one in communication and one in journalism.

Communication The School of Communication offers a Bachelor of Science in Communication degree. For more than 125 years, the school has been preparing students for management and creative roles in communication and media industries, and for responsible civic participation in the proliferating world of global media. The communication program offers courses of study in the areas of communication theory, history and media technologies. The program enables students to develop critical skills in communication.

Alongside analytic coursework, students develop creative proficiency in the full range of communications disciplines. Whether editing their own films, writing screenplays, directing TV programs in studio, producing documentaries, developing computer animation, or designing a website, students graduate as highly skilled professionals ready to lead in their field of choice.

Journalism The Medill School of Journalism offers a Bachelor of Science in Journalism degree. With its distinguished history of training worldclass journalists since 1921, Northwestern helps students find their own voice within global media, preparing them to exercise leadership and creative vision in their chosen careers. The fully accredited program teaches students the essentials of reporting and storytelling across diverse media platforms. In keeping with its mission to produce informed journalists who are able to keep pace with the evolving world of journalism, students are instructed in all the media and take two thirds of their classes in liberal arts subjects such as literature, history, economics, and religion. This formula creates the high caliber journalists for which Medill and Northwestern are known. Northwestern students turn theory into practice through journalism residencies where they work in dynamic news environments, learning from real journalists and gaining insight into the hotbed of legal and ethical issues affecting media freedoms around the world. Students learn how to produce news pieces for television and how to market their ideas for articles; they learn the craft of writing features for magazines and then how to edit a tes go on

magazine; they learn community reporting and how to bring stories to life through photojournalism. Equipped with an extensive range of skills, graduates go on to forge successful careers in journalism, while others make their mark in public relations, advertising, education, law, and politics.

The Northwestern student body is made up of active, friendly, dynamic, conscientious students who take an interest in the world around them and want to become leaders in and outside of the classroom. They are active in a range of student activities and organizations. Student Affairs Office at Northwestern University in Qatar coordinates student-led organizations, service learning trips, leadership training, study skill workshops and wellness and recreation opportunities to meet the needs and interests of NU-Q students.

Features of an Excellent Legal Research and Writing Program Rafael Dean Brown, Assistant Adjunct Professor of Law Foreign Graduate LL.M. Programs Case Western Reserve University School of Law

Every year, LL.M. applicants from various parts of the world struggle to make a complex decision: what is the best LL.M. program for me? This decision involves asking numerous complex questions about affordability, location, and a law school's curriculum. Most often, however, LL.M. applicants forget to ask the most important questions: (1) what do lawyers do, and (2) which program will teach me or help me to improve to do what lawyers do? As a lawyer and having taught at the LL.M. program at Case Western Reserve University School of Law for the past five years, I often find that LL.M. applicants often do not know or forget what it is that lawyers really do. Lawyers solve problems and lawyers write about how to solve problems. Most LL.M. applicants may focus their search for a program that teaches them how to solve a specific legal problem, say intellectual property law or international business. Yet, this is only one side of the coin. LL.M. 40

International Admissions

applicants should also look for a program with an excellent legal research and writing curriculum. In weighing your options, you should look for LL.M. legal research and writing programs that have the following features: (1) electronic database research and citation training, (2) individualized writing workshops, (3) an approachable writing instructor or writing center, (4) teaches how to research and write legal briefs or memos, and (5) teaches how to research and write an academic legal research paper. Electronic database research training involves training in Lexis and Westlaw. Almost all law schools have an agreement with both Lexis and Westlaw for the companies to provide free research training for their students at the law school and free access to both online research databases while the student is in law school. The program should also teach students how to properly cite legal documents. Citations teach student to pay attention to detail, which is a critical lawyering skill.

Individualized workshops are important simply because most LL.M. programs will be composed of students from various countries. The research and writing center should be able to make suggestions to a student based on individual need. A student from Saudi Arabia will have different writing concerns than a student from Thailand, and LL.M. legal writing instructors should tailor their workshops accordingly. This helps when the writing instructor or writing center is approachable. The student should be able to ask the instructor questions about research and writing whenever there is one. An LL.M. writing program should also teach both the academic legal research paper and the legal brief. Most schools only teach one or the other. Yet, each is a different genre of legal writing that requires a different skill to master. The academic research paper teaches students how to be a scholar, which is an ongoing role tied to the responsibility of an attorney to engage in a dialogue about the law. The legal brief, on the other hand, teaches students how to make arguments, support arguments with relevant authorities, how to structure arguments, how to tell persuasive stories, and others. The legal brief is also the best method to train students to use the CRAC system, the standard rhetorical structure for U.S. legal writing, including law school exams. Before making a final decision, don't forget that lawyers are writers, and writing is perhaps the most important skill you must learn as a lawyer.
