Are you graduating this semester? Will you be doing legal research at your job this summer? Maybe you’re a recent alum who wants a chance to brush up on the alternatives to Lexis and Westlaw.
If so, don’t end up doing research like Judge Weatherly up there. Instead, join us on Wednesday, April 30 for an hour-long workshop that will cover tips, tricks, and resources that will allow you to wow supervising attorneys with your impressive research acumen.
The session will last from 10:00-11:00 in room 530. To register, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Prepare to Practice 4/30.”
