Social Justice & Cost-Effective Legal Research Seminars
Several of the eighteen Law Library Legal Research Seminars demonstrate research in a social justice topic and cost-effective research strategies:
- Starting Research with Secondary Sources
- Terms & Connectors Searching
- Cost-Effective Searching on Lexis & Westlaw
- Cost-Effective Federal Legislative History: Congress.gov and Govinfo.gov
Law Library Legal Research Seminars are for C|M|LAW students, including MLS and LLM students, and are continuously available online via the Westlaw TWEN platform. To view Seminars, connect to TWEN, “add” the “C|M|Law Library Legal Research Seminars” course, then view any or all of the listed Seminars. Students interested in receiving a “Law Library Legal Research Letter of Recognition” and a Digital Badge (which you can can share on social networks, blogs, and websites) need to earn 100 Seminar points. Each Seminar is 12.5 or 25 points, and you earn points by correctly answer 3/4 of the questions on a Seminar’s accompanying quiz. Seminar points are good for the entire time you are at C|M|LAW, and you can earn multiple Letters and Digital Badges.
