Legal Research Tips: Writing a Paper

Are your students trying to complete research for a paper, or struggling with other areas of research?  The reference librarians are holding informal sessions for students in October and November.  Details are below.

Do you have a class that requires a paper rather than an exam? Or, perhaps you are doing an independent study this semester. Come hear Kelly talk about resources to use in research for scholarly legal writing. The discussion will be brief and highlight resources available to law students that you might not know about. The discussion will be general but questions can be specific to your topic.

Kelly Kunsch will present his talk today at 5 p.m. in Room 309.
