Get REAL!: Finding Statutes

Our short tutorial series continues on Wednesday, November 2, with an installment on "Finding Statutes." Sometimes the laws are written down clearly, and that can be a great starting point in the legal research process. Join Nick at 1:30 pm at the Reference Desk for this short "Get REAL!" (Research and Electronic-Assisted Learning) class to learn more.

Get REAL!: Finding Cases

Don't listen to people who tell you, "Don't make a federal case of it"! If you want to find more cases to support your legal research, stop by our short tutorial on Wednesday, October 26. Our "Get REAL!" (Research and Electronic-Assisted Learning) class this week is on finding cases. Nick starts the show at 1:30 pm at the Reference Desk; it should last only about fifteen minutes.

Get REAL!: Finding Treatises

It's time to review your legal research skills! We'll be kicking off our tutorial series -- we call them "Get REAL! (Research and Electronic-Assisted Learning)" classes -- beginning on Wednesday, October 19. Join our new Reference Librarian Nick Stump at 1:30 pm at the Reference Desk as he reviews the best ways to find treatises on a particular topic. We aim for short classes, so we won't run over 15 minutes (unless you want us to). To see what other classes we'll have this semester, check out the Library classes page.
