Join Us for Our Upcoming US Law Webinars in July 2021

Next month, the Law Library of Congress will present two webinars. The first will be an introduction to the Constitution Annotated, which surveys and expounds how the Supreme Court of the United States has interpreted every provision of the Constitution throughout the nation’s history. The second will be an orientation to the collections of the Law Library. More information about the content of both webinars and registration links can be found below.
