Prepare for Summer with a Research Refresher

Before you head to that summer job, brush up on those research skills at the Law Library's annual Research Refresher brown-bag series! This year's schedule will help you review everything you've forgotten from LARW, and will also introduce some new, practice-oriented research topics in order to help you stand out in the crowd at work.

All classes will take place in Room 4172 from 12:15-1:15 p.m.* Dessert and drinks will be provided; attendees are encouraged to bring a lunch.
  • Monday 3/31: Cases & Court Documents (Lauren Collins)
  • Tuesday 4/1: Regulations & Administrative Materials (Melanie Dunshee)
  • Friday 4/4: Statutes & Legislative History (Jennifer Behrens)
  • Monday 4/7: “You Want Me to Research WHAT?!”: Getting Background & Keeping Current (Jennifer Behrens)
  • Tuesday 4/8: Life After Rewards Points: Free & Cheap Legal Research (Jennifer Behrens)
  • Thursday 4/10: Putting it All Together: Taking a Work Assignment from Start to Finish (Katherine Topulos)
  • Friday 4/11: Business Law Boot Camp* (Laura Scott)
*Note: Business Law Boot Camp is a special two-part Research Refresher. The first hour of this session will introduce you to basic business law research questions, some frequently-used resources, and helpful research strategies. The second part will give you hands-on practice researching business law issues. Students can choose to attend both parts of this refresher, or just the first. Advance sign-up is strongly recommended for Business Law Boot Camp; see to register.
