Exemplary Legal Writing: Green Bag 2011 nominees

by Ted McClure 7. November 2011 17:23

The Green Bag has posted its nominees for Exemplary Legal Writing for 2011.

During November and early December, the luminaries and sages on our board of advisers will select ... those works that should appear in the 2012 Almanac & Reader as exemplars of good legal writing from the year just passed.

We have all but three of the nominated books, and those three are on order. Highly recommended.

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.

RSVP here.
