JFK students have multiple opportunities to attend live virtual workshops. These sessions are interactive and provide opportunities to learn from peers and ask questions.
Join Law Librarian Jamie Diermier for an informative, interactive skills-building workshop that will review legal research strategies, databases, and specific legal materials and resources you’ll need to succeed in the JD program. Come prepared to share your questions and learn from Jamie and your fellow peers. Attend as often as you like!
Connect to the Library Events page to register for this workshop.
Join law librarian Jamie Diermier for a hands-on, interactive workshop where you will gain first-hand experience conducting legal research. This workshop goes a step above the 101 workshop offering. This legal research "learning lab" is designed to allow multiple, simultaneous screenshare for each participant, therefore each session will be limited to 5 students or less to allow for individual attention.
There will be hypos (fact patterns, or hypothetical legal issues) presented at the beginning of the workshop, and each participant will go into their own Westlaw and Lexis portal and learn where legal resources are and how to approach a legal research issue from start to finish. Participant screensharing is highly encouraged - please come prepared!
