This fall, three sections of the popular Advanced Legal Research class (3 credits) will be offered. There are also 2 credit subject-specific classes for those of you interested in environmental, international, immigration and tax law, or on related journals. Next spring, you can take some more research classes! As always, Advanced Legal Research will be offered, along with subject-specific classes for insurance & civil litigation, intellectual property, and criminal law.
If you have questions, please stop and chat with the reference librarians--we will be staffing a table outside the library in coming days. A complete list of offerings, with full descriptions, is available by clicking on the title of this blog post.

I recently attended the ABA Techshow and Expo, the ABA's annual conference about newer trends in law practice technology. What most stood out to me on the first day was the near ubiquity of tablet computers, especially iPads, in the hands of nearly every attendee, along with a great deal of discussion on how mobile devices are beginning to change how law is practiced. Many other new gadgets and software solutions were highlighted in the expo, while the conference sessions focused on managing client and information and documents in the cloud, making the transition to a paperless office, e-discovery, use of technology in the courtroom, data security, leveraging social media, and the increasing presence of Macs in law offices. Check out the links throughout this post for more information on the hot topics at Techshow.
