Research Preparation for your Supervised Analytical Writing
This fall, the Law Library will be hosting a series of fall research seminars focused on helping law students
prepare for their supervised analytical writing (SAW) assignment by
demonstrating the emerging technologies in the field of legal research.
Students will learn about helpful (and not so helpful) legal
databases, how to search for information and how maintain legal
research records. Lecturers will showcase subscription based as well
as open source tools for legal research. These seminars are open to
the whole law school community. The first event is:
