LAW 598 Seminar

At the first stage of the seminar course, deficiencies of the student about putting forward a question regarding a research, conversion of the research into the thesis format and determining the study method are eliminated. Then by considering the academic background and fields of interest of the student a topic related to the masters thesis is determined. It is also possible for the student to choose a topic which is not related to his/her masters thesis. Within this framework the student studies the research subject, the basic and sub questions of the research, the method, the outline and major sections of the study with the lecturer. Finally at the end of the semester the student presents his/her study in the class.
