Upcoming US Law Webinars – February 2023

February is known for Valentine’s Day and Washington’s Birthday. If you have some time between crafting cards for loved ones and learning about America’s presidents, we recommend attending some of our upcoming webinars.

In February, our slate of webinars includes two presentations on American legal resources: one on navigating Congress.gov and the other on federal legislation. More information about the Law Library’s upcoming U.S. law webinars and registration links can be found below.
