The following is a guest post by Anna Price, a legal reference librarian at the Law Library of Congress.The Law Library of Congress is pleased to announce a new series of webinars on U.S. laws and legal resources. These classes are taught by reference librarians and designed to give a basic introduction to legal sources and research techniques. The upcoming webinars are an offshoot of our orientation to legal research classes, which were formerly available only to those who could visit our DC campus in person.
Our first webinar, on February 20, 2020, will provide an overview of U.S. case law research, including information about the U.S. federal court system, the publication of court opinions, methods for researching case law, and information about locating records and briefs.
This webinar will be presented by Barbara Bavis, the Law Library’s bibliographic and research instruction librarian. Barbara holds a BA in history from Duke University, a JD from the University of North Carolina School of Law, and an MLIS with a specialization in law librarianship from Catholic University.
