libraryThis great engraving from Yale Law Library seems to be suggesting that back in the old days, you did legal research by standing around a law library waiting for a goddess to stick the magical hat of wisdom on your head. But that won’t cut it in the modern workplace. Be sure to attend the Widener Law Library’s Prepare to Practice workshop for legal research tips for the new attorney, summer associate, or law clerk.

Prepare to Practice: Free Online Legal Resources and Research Tips for New Associates, Summer Associates, Interns, Clerks, Law and Paralegal Students

Thursday, April 14th at 12:15pm and again at 5:15pm in the Library’s Special Collections Room.

The cost of subscription based legal information continues to rise as courts, firms and non-profits are looking for ways to cut costs. All legal professionals should be aware of the resources that are available for free online.

As part of the Legal Information Center’s National Library Week Celebration (April 10th – 16th), come learn about all of the free primary legal materials available online. We’ll cover Federal, State and Local legal resources available for free on the Internet as well as advanced searching techniques that will help you in “the real world.”

Note: This is an abridged version of the library’s popular CLE , Free and Low-Cost Online Legal Research. Presenters will be librarians Maggie Stewart Adams and Mary Alice Peeling. For more information contact Maggie Stewart Adams –
