HLS Dissertations, Theses, and JD Papers

S.j.d. dissertations, ll.m. papers, ll.m. theses, j.d. papers, submitting your paper to an online collection, other sources for student papers beyond harvard, getting help, introduction.

This is a guide to finding Harvard Law School (“HLS”) student-authored works held by the Library and in online collections. This guide covers HLS S.J.D Dissertations, LL.M. papers, J.D. third-year papers, seminar papers, and prize papers.

There have been changes in the HLS degree requirements for written work. The library’s collection practices and catalog descriptions for these works has varied. Please note that there are gaps in the library’s collection and for J.D. papers, few of these works are being collected any longer.

If we have an S.J.D. dissertation or LL.M. thesis, we have two copies. One is kept in the general collection and one in the Red Set, an archival collection of works authored by HLS affiliates. If we have a J.D. paper, we have only one copy, kept in the Red Set. Red Set copies are last resort copies available only by advance appointment in Historical and Special Collections .

Some papers have not been processed by library staff. If HOLLIS indicates a paper is “ordered-received” please use this form to have library processing completed.

The HLS Doctor of Juridical Science (“S.J.D.”) program began in 1910.  The library collection of these works is not comprehensive. Exceptions are usually due to scholars’ requests to withhold Library deposit. 

  • HLS S.J.D. Dissertations in HOLLIS To refine these search results by topic or faculty advisor, or limit by date, click Add a New Line.
  • Hein’s Legal Theses and Dissertations Microfiche Mic K556.H45x Drawers 947-949 This microfiche set includes legal theses and dissertations from HLS and other premier law schools. It currently includes about 300 HLS dissertations and theses.
  • Hein's Legal Theses and Dissertations Contents List This content list is in order by school only, not by date, subject or author. It references microfiche numbers within the set housed in the Microforms room on the entry level of the library, drawers 947-949. The fiche are a different color for each institution.
  • ProQuest Dissertations and Theses @ Harvard University (Harvard login) Copy this search syntax: dg(S.J.D.) You will find about 130 SJD Dissertations dated from 1972 to 2004. They are not available in full text.
  • DASH Digital Access to Scholarship at Harvard Sponsored by Harvard University’s Office for Scholarly Communication, DASH is an open repository for research papers by members of the Harvard community. There are currently about 600 HLS student papers included. Unfortunately it is not possible to search by type of paper or degree awarded.

The Master of Laws (“LL.M.”) degree has been awarded since 1923. Originally, the degree required completion of a major research paper, akin to a thesis. Since 1993, most students have the option of writing the LL.M. "short paper."  This is a 25-page (or longer) paper advised by a faculty supervisor or completed in conjunction with a seminar.  Fewer LL.M. candidates continue to write the more extensive "long-paper." LL.M. candidates holding J.D.s from the U.S. must write the long paper.

  • HLS Written Work Requirements for LL.M. Degree The current explanation of the LL.M. written work requirement for the master of laws.

The library generally holds HLS LL.M. long papers and short papers. In recent years, we require author release in order to do so. In HOLLIS, no distinction is made between types of written work created in satisfaction of the LL.M. degree; all are described as LL.M. thesis. Though we describe them as thesis, the law school refers to them solely as papers or in earlier years, essays. HOLLIS records indicate the number of pages, so at the record level, it is possible to distinguish long papers.

  • HLS LL.M. Papers in HOLLIS To refine these search results by topic, faculty advisor, seminar or date, click Add a New Line.

HLS LL.M. Papers are sometimes available in DASH and Hein's Legal Dissertations and Theses. See descriptions above .

The HLS J.D. written work requirement has changed over time. The degree formerly required a substantial research paper comparable in scope to a law review article written under faculty supervision, the "third year paper." Since 2008, J.D. students have the option of using two shorter works instead.

Of all those written, the library holds relatively few third-year papers. They were not actively collected but accepted by submission from faculty advisors who deemed a paper worthy of institutional retention. The papers are described in HOLLIS as third year papers, seminar papers, and student papers. Sometimes this distinction was valid, but not always. The faculty deposit tradition more or less ended in 2006, though the possibility of deposit still exists.

  • HLS Seminar Papers Note that these include legal research pathfinders produced for the Advanced Legal Research course when taught by Virginia Wise.

Prize Papers

HLS has many endowed prizes for student papers and essays. There are currently 16 different writing prizes. See this complete descriptive list with links to lists of winners from 2009 to present. Note that there is not always a winner each year for each award. Prize winners are announced each year in the commencement pamphlet.

The Library has not specifically collected prize papers over the years but has added copies when possible. The HOLLIS record for the paper will usually indicate its status as a prize paper. The most recent prize paper was added to the collection in 2006.

UK Theses and Dissertations

Electronic copies of Ph.D. theses submitted at over 100 UK universities are obtainable from EThOS , a service set up to provide access to all theses from participating institutions. It achieves this by harvesting e-theses from Institutional Repositories and by digitising print theses as they are ordered by researchers using the system. Over 250,000 theses are already available in this way. Please note that it does not supply theses submitted at the universities of Cambridge or Oxford although they are listed on EThOS.

Registration with EThOS is not required to search for a thesis but is necessary to download or order one unless it is stored in the university repository rather than the British Library (in which case a link to the repository will be displayed). Many theses are available without charge on an Open Access basis but in all other cases, if you are requesting a thesis that has not yet been digitised you will be asked to meet the cost. Once a thesis has been digitised it is available for free download thereafter.

When you order a thesis it will either be immediately available for download or writing to hard copy or it will need to be digitised. If you order a thesis for digitisation, the system will manage the process and you will be informed when the thesis is available for download/preparation to hard copy.

World-wide (incl. UK) theses and dissertations

Electronic versions of non-UK theses may be available from the institution at which they were submitted, sometimes on an open access basis from the institutional repository. A good starting point for discovering freely available electronic theses and dissertations beyond the UK is the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD) , which facilitates searching across institutions. Information can also usually be found on the library web pages of the relevant institution.

The DART Europe etheses portal lists several thousand full-text theses from a group of European universities.

The University Library subscribes to the ProQuest Dissertations and Theses  (PQDT) database which from August 31 2023 is accessed on the Web of Science platform.  To search this index select it from the Web of Science "Search in" drop-down list of databases (available on the Documents tab on WoS home page)

PQDT includes 2.4 million dissertation and theses citations, representing 700 leading academic institutions worldwide from 1861 to the present day. The database offers full text for most of the dissertations added since 1997 and strong retrospective full text coverage for older graduate works. Each dissertation published since July 1980 includes a 350-word abstract written by the author. Master's theses published since 1988 include 150-word abstracts.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The University Library only subscribes to the abstracting & indexing version of the ProQuest Dissertations and Theses database and NOT the full text version.  A fee is payable for ordering a dissertation from this source.   To obtain the full text of a dissertation as a downloadable PDF you can submit your request via the University Library Inter-Library Loans department (see contact details below). NB this service is only available to full and current members of the University of Cambridge.

Alternatively you can pay yourself for the dissertation PDF on the PQDT platform. Link from Web of Science record display of any thesis to PQDT by clicking on "View Details on ProQuest".  On the "Preview" page you will see an option "Order a copy" top right.  This will allow you to order your own copy from ProQuest directly.

Thesis Guidelines

Criminal Justice graduate students are required to complete a thesis. The thesis is designed to provide students with an opportunity to display knowledge and skills that have been developed during graduate school. The thesis requires students to analyze either quantitative or qualitative data in some way.

Students in the traditional master's program must complete a thesis. The thesis is designed to be a theoretically guided examination of some criminal justice issue. Thus, the thesis can be similar to a professional paper insofar as it may be an evaluation of a program or policy issue, but the evaluation should be based on predictions derived from a theory. Alternatively, the thesis could involve basic research where a student tests hypotheses that are derived from theories relevant to criminal justice. Ideally, the thesis is similar to a journal article on a topic that makes a contribution to the field.

The thesis format is that of a journal article. It should begin with a literature review followed by a method section, a results section, and a discussion section.

Thesis Committee

Graduate students must select a thesis committee. The committee is composed of three members from the Department of Criminal Justice and an additional member who must come from an outside department. One faculty member from the Department of Criminal Justice will serve as chair of the committee. The chair will guide the student through the process of completing their thesis. Students should first select the Chair of their committee, who will advise the student on other appropriate members of the committee.

Thesis Proposal

Graduate students must submit a proposal that briefly describes the project they wish to conduct to all members of their committee. The proposal should address the following issues:

  • What exactly do you want to study? Why?
  • What is the theoretical and/or practical significance of your study?
  • What other studies have been done that relate to your study? What are the basic findings of those studies?
  • What theories address your research topic? What do they say about it?
  • If relevant, specific hypotheses to be tested should be clearly stated.
  • What are the independent, dependent, and control variables in your study?
  • How will data be collected (e.g., survey, experiment, field research)?
  • How will you measure the variables in your study?
  • What type of sample will be used? What are your units of analysis?
  • How will human subjects be protected?
  • How will data sets be acquired if secondary data analysis is employed?
  • What kind of statistical analysis do you expect to conduct (e.g., regression, ANOVA, chi-square, etc.)?
  • A timetable for completing each section of the thesis must be included.
  • If relevant, provide copies of proposed materials (e.g., questionnaires to be administered).

Proposal Meeting

After the graduate student submits a copy of the proposal to the committee members, the student will meet with the committee and discuss the proposed project.

All committee members must approve the proposal before the graduate student begins work on the project. Once consensus has been reached about the proposed research, committee members will sign your Appointment of Examination Committee form indicating acceptance of the study as outlined in the proposal.

Schedule for Completing Thesis Requirements

Students must follow the schedule for completion of requirements described below. If a student cannot meet the specified deadlines, they must obtain written approval to extend the deadlines from the Department of Criminal Justice graduate coordinator.

Students who do not complete the requirements by the deadlines (or who do not obtain deadline extension approval from the graduate coordinator) may be separated from the Criminal Justice Program and/or may have their graduate assistantship funding withdrawn.

Deadlines for Full-Time Graduate Students and Graduate Assistants

  • Students must form the committee for their thesis by the mid-semester mark of their third semester.
  • Students must have their thesis proposal meeting before the final day of their third semester.
  • Students must submit their thesis to their committee 20 days before the official last day to defend their thesis of their fourth semester. This date changes every semester and is published in the official UNLV schedule.

Note: Summer sessions do not count as official semesters.

Deadlines for Part-Time Graduate Students

  • Students must form the committee for their thesis by the mid-semester mark of the semester the student will earn their 24th credit.
  • Students must have their thesis proposal meeting before the final day of the semester they will earn their 24th credit.
  • Students must submit their thesis to their committee 20 days before the official last day to defend their thesis in their final semester (e.g., after completing 30 credits). This date changes every semester and is published in the official UNLV schedule.

Note: Part-time students must complete 30 credits of course work within 5 1/2 years of beginning the graduate program in criminal justice.

  • How It Works

222 Criminal Justice Thesis Topics To Make You Shine

Criminal Justice Thesis Topics

What is criminal justice? Criminal justice deals with delivering justice to people who have committed crimes. The field entails a series of institutions and government agencies that co-work to bring illegal activities to book. Some of the purposes of a criminal justice thesis paper include:

  • Facilitating the rehabilitation of offenders
  • Ensuring that similar crimes do not occur again
  • Providing moral support for victims

Such papers are critical, and this one has to take a professional approach, especially when writing criminal justice paper topics.

How To Write Criminal Justice Thesis Papers

Students in college and university taking criminal justice as a major are supposed to equip themselves with various writing techniques. For instance, there are times when one has to employ the methods used by a lawyer in presenting a case. Since this is a cross-disciplinary field, you will have to formulate your arguments in a defensible thesis with evidence to support them. The criminal justice thesis statement should be:

Concise, Easy to understand, and Backed up by evidence and research.

You can choose to present the evidence either in qualitative or quantitative data. The former is expressed in texts, observations, and interviews, while the latter is in the form of numbers drawn from statistics. For a quality criminal justice paper, use these expert writing tips:

  • Use the APA style guide in formatting your paper
  • Present your arguments in a clear language
  • Do not stuff up too many pieces of evidence in one paragraph
  • Avoid using personal opinions when defending a particular argument

Chapter Two Review of Related Literature and Studies This Chapter is a presentation of the review of related and studies the researchers after conducting reading and research were able to gather and present ideas, literature and studies to the present problem. This study is one way of another would give to us further insights about this research. Related literature The establishment of the Katarungang Pambarangay System under Presidential Decree No.1508 is significant even in our national life. The system seeks to enrich custom of setting disputes amicably to rescue the Courts of remembers time to the adjudication of cases. The successful implementation of this system will depend to a great extent upon the Barangay Captains and Lupon Members who are called lupon to serve in the conciliation panels, very much will depend too on how intelligently they will understand the system. Thus According to Onendain Barangay Justice, to repeat is a splendid idea. It holds bright promises for the establishment of a fast and orderly society under a new political order. But much of its success must depend upon the people themselves and the official who will administer the system and the citizen who will participate in it. In one way or another on how responsibly they will perform their respective role and more basically, how clearly and intelligently they read the law. This is pursuant to section of Presidential Decree No, 1580 the rules and regulation are hereby promulgated for the amicable settlement of disputes at the Barangay level, without judicial recourse. Lawson defines justice as fair treatment under the law this mean that those who are authorized to enforce the law must treat people family and equally by showing respect for the role of law. Only by applying the law equally to all rich or poor, high or low cannot be legitimacy And acceptance from those people over whom they rule Lawson further said, there can be no justice without the prior establishment of the principle of the rule of law. There can be no justice without the body of law to guide the judges. The more existence of a body of law and competent judges does not quarantine that justice will prevail. There can be no doubt that do who have been given the authority to determine what is just may commit errors of judgment. As former Associate Justice Roberto Regala of the Supreme Court said many years ago, Equal justice under the law is more than an abstraction. It is a way of life It is essential on our part to carry or demonstrate this thought to the street so that our people will have a better understanding of the rule of law. A desire for smooth interpersonal relationships is not an exclusive trait. It is in fact universal, it being in the nature of man in civilized societies at least to avoid conflicts for all the dangers and

inconvenience they involve as Takeyoshi, a Japanese professor of law aptly observed. There is probably no society in which legislation is the normal means or resolving disputes. Rarely will both parties press their claim so far as to require to a court; instead one of the disputants will probably offer a satisfactory settlement or propose the use of some extra judicial in normal procedure. In professor Kwashimas own country the principle of mediation is very much a part of the legal system, especially in the settlement of disputes of contractual nature. Apparently different countries have different method is informal settlement of cases but their objectives are in variably the same, which are to afford the contending parties speedy justice with the last inconvenience and expenses and to relieve the courts of minor cases to improve the quality of justice dispensed by them. These are precisely the objectives of Presidential Decree No.150. The review literature are related to this present because it discuss the implementation of Katarungang Pambarangay Law, and what is he similar of this.

A separate theoretical and legal study should be devoted to essential features of legal consciousness of Muslims, which will be based on the study of perception of positive law through the prism of Islamic religious and legal doctrine. It is advisable to start the basis of this study with definition of its main structural element - the types of Muslim legal consciousness. Consideration of this issue from the standpoint of natural law will expand the traditional boundaries of theory of modern legal consciousness, open up additional applied and scientific horizons and, using the example of Islam, allow us to consider peculiarities of religious influence on legal consciousness of various categories of citizens. Knowledge of foundations of Muslim law, procedure for formation of moral and social religious attitudes, interpretation of religious canons and dogmas contribute to a better understanding of many processes taking place within Russian Muslim community and can form the basis of mechanism for formation of moral legal consciousness, which must be opposed, in its turn, to radical and criminalized forms of religious consciousness.

The authors have investigated the equilibrated adsorption of water vapors on GFG hopcalite, which was obtained using the extrusion shaping method, with bentonite clay as the binding compound. In the frames of the BET model, the values of the monolayer capacity and the size of medium area occupied by the water molecule in the filled monolayer have been determined. The distribution of pores according to their sizes has been evaluated. It has been established that the modification of the bentonitic clay allows directed construction of the hopcalite porous structure, i.e. the formation of the mesoporous structure with a narrow distribution of the pores capacities by sizes, which was achieved varying the sizes of binding compound particles.

New York judge widens Trump case gag order; limits in criminal case lifted

Trump Organization trial in New York State Supreme Court in New York

Judge Arthur Engoron looks on at the courtroom before the start of former U.S. President Donald Trump’s civil fraud case in New York, U.S., October 18, 2023. Jeenah Moon/Pool via REUTERS Acquire Licensing Rights

NEW YORK, Nov 3 (Reuters) - A judge on Friday issued an expanded gag order in the New York state civil fraud case against Donald Trump, while a federal appeals court temporarily lifted similar restrictions in a criminal case against the former U.S. president in Washington.

The order issued by Justice Arthur Engoron of the New York state court in Manhattan bars public statements by lawyers in the case about the judge's communications with his staff. The case brought by New York state's attorney general accuses Trump of inflating his assets and net worth to obtain favorable bank loans and lower insurance premiums.

Engoron first imposed a gag order on Oct. 3 after Trump shared on social media a photo of the judge's principal law clerk posing with U.S. Senate Majority leader Chuck Schumer, a Democrat, and falsely called her Schumer's "girlfriend."

The judge has fined Trump $15,000 for twice violating that gag order. The expanded gag order covers lawyers as well after a member of Trump's legal team, Christopher Kise, objected to the clerk passing notes to the judge during the trial. Defense lawyers in the case have made repeated objections about the working relationship between the judge and his clerk, including suggestions that she was biased. Trump also has accused her of bias.

Separately, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District if Columbia Circuit granted Trump's request to pause U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan's gag order that limited his statements in a case brought by Special Counsel Jack Smith accusing him of unlawfully trying to undo his 2020 election loss.

A three-judge panel, all appointed by Democratic presidents, scheduled oral arguments on Trump's appeal of the gag order for Nov. 20. Chutkan's order barred statements that target prosecutors and potential witnesses in the case.

Trump in the past has called Smith a "deranged lunatic" and a "thug," among other insults. Trump's lawyers have argued the order violates his free speech rights under the U.S. Constitution's First Amendment.

In the New York case, Engoron said on Friday he has an "unfettered right" to consult with his staff members throughout the trial, and that the gag order was intended to protect their safety.

"The First Amendment right of defendants and their attorneys to comment on my staff is far and away outweighed by the need to protect them from threats and physical harm," Engoron wrote.

Failure to honor the gag order, the judge said, "shall result in serious sanctions."

The order was issued after Trump's sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump testified this week. Their father is expected to testify on Monday.
