We are once again promoting our upcoming U.S. law webinars. Like many of you, most Law Library of Congress employees are continuing to work from home due to the pandemic and local health and safety regulations. While we cannot see our Law Library colleagues face-to-face, over the past few months some of us have been working alongside our at-home coworkers (pets). These coworkers regularly attend our meetings, conferences, and presentations, and you may have heard some of them in the background during prior webinars. Please enjoy meeting a few of our coworkers, who will be present for our November webinars.

Are these webinars recorded for later viewing? I they sound like might be great introductory sessions for students in paralegal programs with which I am associated. Please let me know.
