Law Library Legal Research Seminars & Digital Badges

The Law Library has two upcoming live Legal Research Seminars particularly important for students who plan to work this summer.  Remember, each C|M|LAW student who earns 100 Legal Research Seminar points receives a Legal Research Seminar Letter of Recognition, as well as a Digital Badge that you can post to your LinkedIn page.

The Ohio Legal Research Crash Course is Thursday, March 29th, and Getting Ready to Clerk is Thursday, April 5th.  Each Seminar is 4:50pm-5:50pm, in Law Library Room A059, and light refreshments will be provided.  In the Ohio Legal Research Crash Course, we’ll examine key Ohio research resources, and discuss effective strategies and best practices for their use.  In the Getting Ready to Clerk Seminar, legal practitioners will talk with you about research projects done by clerks and new associates – how projects are assigned, typical projects, and feedback to expect.  Each of these Seminars is worth 25 points.

The Law Library also has eight online Legal Research Seminars, available on the Westlaw TWEN platform, that students can “attend” at their convenience:

  • Starting Research with Secondary Sources (17:02 mins; 12.5 points)
  • Bluebooking (38:47 mins; 25 points)
  • Terms & Connectors Searching (10:48 mins; 12.5 points)
  • Lexis Advance Overview (21:11 mins; 12.5 points)

  • KeyCite (10:16 mins; 12.5 points)
  • Bioethics Research & Scholarly Writing (28:33 mins; 25 points)

Your Seminar points are good for the entire time you are here at C|M|LAW, and you can earn multiple Letters of Recognition and Digital Badges.  Questions?  Contact Laura Ray, Outreach & Instructional Services Librarian, 216-687-6880, l.ray@csuohio.edu.
