Over the past few months we have announced upcoming webinars in individual blog posts. We are switching things up a little and announcing all U.S. law webinars in one blog post for the month of August. We will continue notifying you about individual foreign law webinars, such as the upcoming presentation on global regulation of artificial intelligence, and other Law Library events. You can also learn about our upcoming programs by visiting the Legal Research Institute.
