Are your legal research skills a little rusty? When legal research transitioned from books to online resources many lawyers were left wondering how to adjust to the new reality. If that describes you then come learn from two law librarians about the latest in research tools, methods, and strategies. Find out how to construct an efficient search online, what the difference in natural language and Boolean logic is, how to create alerts to stay on top of new cases and legislation, and the best online resources for different practice areas. You will leave this course with a renewed sense of confidence in your legal research acumen!
