It’s that time of year again, when law students head to summer jobs and recent grads start thinking about practicing law, not just studying it. In hopes of providing a little confidence boost (plus some practical research instruction), the librarians at the UW and SU have once again teamed up to present a half-day free training program for interested students. In order to accommodate students’ schedules, the program is offered twice.
Our first session was held May 18. About 40 participants were treated to a series of presentations covering Legal Research in the Real World, Washington and Federal Legislative Research, Lawyer’s Practice Materials and Washington and Federal Regulatory Research. Evaluations were positive, with participants saying that they can certainly see how this material will be useful for their work.
For those unable to make the first offering, the program will be offered again at the University of Washington on June 15 from 12:45 until 5pm.
