Featured Service--Librarian Lectures and Instruction

Did you know that Regent's law librarians are available to guest lecture on specialized research topics, to lead hands-on training sessions in the library, to demonstrate effective use of library resources, and to provide individual assistance to particular students? In the past, law faculty members have requested lectures or training sessions on topics including:

  • Labor & Labor Arbitration Law
  • Legislative History
  • Wills, Trusts, & Estates
  • Federal Administrative Law
  • Government Contracts
  • School Law
  • Family Law
  • Tax Law

One Regent Law professor had this to say about a recent research lecture:

"Much of my coursework revolves around students doing their own statutory research for domestic relations regulations; and laws regarding the proper construction, execution and probate of wills. Each semester, students ask questions at least weekly on how to do this research.  I asked Eric Welsh to come to our second class (of each course) to explain, demonstrate and offer hints relating to this type of research and he was excellent.  Students not only learned the how-tos . . . but now they know they have another resource available when they have research questions."

Professor Lynne Marie Kohm

Faculty interested in scheduling a research lecture or other course-related instruction should contact their Library Liaison directly, with as much lead time as possible.
