gharris (Fri, 22 Jan 2016 14:32:28 GMT): Rollback: Because the topic does not vary in this course, i.e., it's not just a catch-all for guided research in the college, let's find a more descriptive title. Perhaps 'Independent Research in Legal Studies' (or Legal Issues), or something along those lines.
