Bluebook Workshop for Tonight & Tomorrow Rescheduled

by Sarah Prosory 31. October 2011 09:32

Tonight’s 7:45pm and tomorrow’s Noon, Bluebook Workshop at One North Central have been rescheduled. Unfortunately due to a family emergency our librarian who is teaching that workshop is unable to instruct tonight and tomorrow.

We have rescheduled the workshop for next week, same times and same room. So, that will be: Monday, November 7th at 745pm and Tuesday, November 8th at Noon, both in room 1821 at One North Central.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. As of right now, this Wednesday’s 7:45pm and this Thursday’s Noon workshops have not been rescheduled, and are still on for this week if you’d like to attend those instead.

Please visit our library calendar to view the current schedule of workshops.

Thank you for your understanding.

AWR- Beyond Lexis and Westlaw

by PSL Law Library 28. October 2011 16:30

Are you writing an AWR? Are you having trouble finding everything you need in Westlaw and Lexis?  By now, you have probably already exhausted Westlaw and Lexis in your AWR research. 

Come to this workshop to learn about all of the other sources that are available through the library website. Bring your questions! Half of this fifty minute workshop will be a demonstration of research databases, and the other half devoted to answering your specific questions! 

See you Friday, November 11th from 12:00 – 12:50pm in the law library computer lab.

Cardinal's Tony LaRussa Lawyer/Manager

by Lynn 20. October 2011 10:14

 

Are you ready to watch the St. Louis Cardinals win game two of the World Series tonight?!  If you watched last night’s game you probably know that pinch hitter Allen Craig drove in what was to be the winning run in the bottom of the sixth, after being sent to bat by Cards manager Tony LaRussa. But, did you know that in addition to being a remarkable manager of his team and one of only two in Major League history to have won a World Series in the American and National League, Tony LaRussa is a 1978 graduate of Florida State University’s School of Law?   LaRussa passed the Florida Bar in 1979, making him one of only five lawyer/managers in baseball history.

Using CALI From TWEN Courses

by Sarah Prosory 10. October 2011 12:07

Hello students!

Your professors may have recommended CALI lessons within your TWEN courses. Many students have noted some issues when using CALI from TWEN. The thing to remember is that you need to login to CALI once you arrive at the CALI website to access the lesson. TWEN does not have the same login as CALI. TWEN does not share who you are with CALI. So you need to follow 3 simple steps:

1. Within your TWEN course, choose the CALI lesson you'd like to take:

 

 

2. Login to CALI. (Don't have a CALI account? You'll need the student code found here. Please call or email the reference desk if you need help: 602-682-6898 or library@phoenixlaw.edu).

 

3. Once you login, you'll see the green play button. Choose the button to access the lesson.
