Upcoming US Law Webinars – September 2022

As much of the country returns to school in September, and the legislative summer recess comes to a close, the Law Library will be marking the month with more webinars on U.S., comparative, and foreign law topics. In September, the Law Library’s orientation webinar will give attendees an overview of the Law Library’s services and products. Additionally, we are pleased to continue with our series of U.S. law research webinars, with a class on researching U.S. case law.
