Will you be working for a law firm this summer? Or maybe a court, government office or non-profit group? If there’s a “gap” between what you remember about legal research from law school classes and the skills you'll need to hit the ground running at a real-world job, there’s a program for you. Each spring the Law Library Association of Greater New York (LLAGNY) offers a "Bridge the Gap" program for law students, to ease the transition from law school to employment. Law librarians who have first hand experience with Summer and new associates come together with leaders of the bench and bar to focus on legal research strategies and key skills, practical tips and advice. Learn how to approach work assignments, ask the right questions, and use skills efficiently to meet and exceed your employer’s expectations.
This year’s program will be held on Friday, March 24 at the New York City Bar. The information flyer and registration form may be found here (scroll down to Bridge the Gap, PDF link). For more information, ask for Tricia or Toni at the Library.
