Considering tackling your AWR soon? Join us on Wednesday, June 5th from 12-1pm in the Law Library's Teaching Lab, Classroom 1337, for a workshop titled Getting Started on Your AWR. This workshop will expose you to the pre-research process.  You will learn to identify research sources in order to narrow down topics and determine whether a chosen topic is practical - with enough accessible, available research.  This workshop will also include a discussion on setting personal research deadlines. Please feel free to bring your lunch!

Would you like to gain a better understanding of a legal topic you are studying this summer? Are you interested in finding out more about the Law Library's Academic Success collection and Westlaw's online study aids? Come learn some tips for success from your very own Law Library staff this Wednesday, June 5th from 3-4pm. The Study Aids workshop will take place in the Library's Teaching Lab, located on the 13th floor in Classroom 1337.
