LLAGNY's "Bridge the Gap"Legal Research Program

Thinking about working as a summer associate or intern? Did you miss some of the Library's "Top 10" Legal Research Skills workshops? Here's another great chance to improve those research skills for summer success!

Each year, the Law Library Association of Greater New York (LLAGNY) sponsors a day-long program focusing on legal research skills, with the goal of easing the transition from law school to summer employment. This year's program will be held Friday, April 8, at New York Law School in Manhattan.

The day includes a general overview session on the research process and individual sessions with sample research issues created for three interest tracks: Corporate Securities; Litigation; and Public Service Practices. The afternoon panel of expert practitioners from different legal venues (firm, nonprofit, court, agency) will describe expectations for summer associates and offer advice. Breakfast, lunch, program materials, and a luncheon speaker on career development are all included for a bargain price of $40.00!

Registration forms and the program schedule are here, at the LLAGNY web site. Hofstra Law students also should have received an email about the event, with instructions for registering after April 1. Forms and information are also available at the Reference Desk.
