Seminar attendance is limited to 20 students, so make your reservations as soon as possible.  Attendees will earn 25 points, and students who earn 100 Seminar points will be awarded Law Library Research Certificates.  Seminar points carry over, so points you earned in previous semesters are still good toward your Certificate.

Research Certificate Seminars discuss research materials and resources critical to successful legal practice and scholarly writing, as well as focus on research skills law firms and courts are seeking when hiring associates and clerks.  Presented by our team of research librarians, the Seminars offer a unique forum for students to learn more about specific research topics.
