Inaugural Issue of the Law Faculty Newsletter

A critical part of the Law Library's mission is supporting the research and teaching needs of the law faculty. We take that mission very seriously. We want you to be fully aware of the range of services and resources that are available. Our hope is that launching an e-newsletter highlighting a particular law library service and resource will ultimately help you become more familiar with the tools at your disposal.

Featured Service--Law Library Liaison Program

We know that you're busy. That's why we created the Law Library Liaison Program. Whether you need complex research assistance or help in tracking down an obscure resource, your Law Library Liaison serves as your primary contact for research-related requests. Your Liaison is available to:

  • help create personalized current awareness and electronic alert services;
  • offer assistance with research projects;
  • provide individual training on how to use library resources effectively;
  • give in-class lectures or lead hands-on instruction sessions on specialized aspects of legal research; and
  • advise and assist research assistants

Though liaisons are always ready to respond to your specific requests for assistance, you can help your Liaison anticipate and proactively meet your needs by submitting a Law Faculty Research Interest Profile. Completing this form only takes a few minutes and is critical if you would like for your Liaison to keep you informed about developments in your current areas of research interest.

Featured Resource--Databases & Electronic Resources Page

The Databases & Electronic Resources page on the Law Library website puts the wide array of electronic resources that the law library provides at your fingertips. Should you have questions or need assistance using any law library resource, please contact your Liaison or any Research Services Librarian.


Upcoming Events--Constitution Day


On September 16, the Law Library will co-sponsor "Constitution Day at Regent University." Professor David Wagner will join School of Government faculty members Jim Davids and Jeff Morrison in a panel discussion focusing on topics relevant to the Constitution and Higher Law.  This discussion will be moderated by Lynne Marie Kohm. 

The event will be held from 12:00-1:00 p.m. in the Library Atrium. Lunch will be provided, with cake and punch afterward on the balcony. Please join us, and encourage your students to come.

This is followed at 1:30 p.m. by a live video-cast debate titled "Free Speech in the Digital Age," a look at internet and textbook censorship in libraries.

Those who would like to attend the lunch should  RSVP to ellecox@regent.edu by Wednesday, September 14.
