Brush up on your legal reference skills to help your patrons find the legal information they need!  A  panel of law librarians will lead you through the maze of law research with this “by librarians, for librarians” workshop.  If you never studied legal reference in library school, would like a refresher, or simply want to respond more effectively to your patrons’ questions, this workshop is for you!

You will learn to identify and apply resources in these areas:

· Basic legal materials

· State and federal case law

· State and federal legislation

· State and federal administrative law

· Internet resources

Bring along sample legal research queries and we’ll help you formulate successful search strategies!

Many thanks to the NJ Law Librarians Association for the fourth year that they are presenting this annual and very successful workshop. We rotate the locations throughout the state and this year we return south to the Mount Laurel Library.

Registering for this class commits you to attending the entire all-day event.  There is no cost to attend, but claiming a space and not attending prevents one of your colleagues from participating and is wasteful of resources.
