Researching Case Law

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Today, Wednesday, October 22, 2014, at 3:10 pm, in SLB 110, join Sarah Ryan, Empirical Research Librarian, for a workshop on researching case law. This workshop will focus on how to create a research strategy to find case law for specific facts and jurisdictions. The workshop will cover secondary sources for case law research and will review how primary sources, such as statutes and cases, can be mined for additional cases. We will also discuss how citating/shepardizing/keyciting can be used to find additional cases. 

This workshop is open to all students; and First Year Students are encouraged to attend. Any student who would like additional legal research instruction is encouraged to attend. No RSVP required.  

This workshop is offered as part of the weekly Research Skills Series, held every Wednesday at 3:10 pm in Room 110. Upcoming workshops include

October 29, Researching with Bloomberg Law, with Jed Lewin, Bloomberg Representative  
October 29, Fundamentals of Treaty Research, with Ryan Harrington, Foreign and International Law Librarian (SLB Room 109)

Please contact  Julie Graves Krishnaswami with questions.
