Sharpen your Westlaw, Lexis, or FastCase Research Skills

by Kristin Moye 10. January 2013 09:42

Do you need to sharpen your Westlaw, Lexis, or FastCase skills? Each of these databases has a variety of training options.  Here are some highlights:

Earn a WestlawNext certification that you can put on your resume by going here and logging in with your One Pass information. WestlawNext certifications are available in two different subject areas, Research More Efficiently and Research More Productively.  Earning a certificate requires completing lessons online and earning at least a 70% on an accompanying quiz.

If you would rather watch a video to learn more about researching, visit the Lexis YouTube channel.

If you are planning to become a member of the State Bar of Arizona, a benefit of membership includes access to FastCase.  Show future employers that you took the initiative to become proficient in FastCase by completing training like webinars and tutorials.  

Of course, PhoenixLaw students can always get one-on-one training from a librarian including at the Legal Research Helpdesk, by phone, email, appointment, or chat!

Free Stuff!!!

Come by the library today or tomorrow and partake in every law student's two favorite words, "free stuff!"

All current PSL students are invited to the library open house today (9/12) or tomorrow (9/13) anytime from noon to 7pm.

Come by and meet the library staff, find out what your library has to offer and most importantly get free stuff (ice cream and popcorn and "lawyerly" photos).
