Hello everyone! Is it autumn yet? It's November for sure!

Bring any questions you have about Westlaw and Lexis, and we will do our best to help you find the answer.

Next, we have a FireFox Addons workshop, geared for all students as well as alumni. This workshop will help you learn about free legal apps to enhance your web browser and improve your research.

And lastly, we have a FastCase workshop, also for all students and alumni.
