Westlaw Training: Thursday, October 11

If you need help finding a job, or perhaps need assistance finding information about a law firm that's going to interview you, why not do a little research with Westlaw? On Thursday, October 11, John Street from Westlaw will be on campus showing you some tips and tricks on using Westlaw to find prospective employment. Since space in our Seminar Room is limited, he will be offering the class four times in thirty-minute increments (3 - 3:30 pm, 3:30 - 4 pm, 4 - 4:30 pm, and 4:30 - 5 pm). Sign up for the job searching class at the Circulation Desk.

1L students in Grant's LP class will also have training from 1 - 2 pm. All other 1L students will get Westlaw training later in the year.

First Monday: New Supreme Court Term Begins

The First Monday in October is the traditional start of a new term of the US Supreme Court. As we mentioned in this month's ASL Library News (which is available online), the justices will be tackling a number of controversial issues. Follow all the action on the High Court's own web site at You might also be interested in US Law Week, which details all the cases filed, the oral arguments, and the opinions when they are released. Our paper copy is on Reserve; ASL faculty and staff may also view electronic copies while on campus by using BNA All.
