Legal Research Workshops

Effective research skills are essential for those engaged in the practice of law. Developing those skills takes time and practice. New topics are frequently added. Check the News and Information page early next semester for complete details about upcoming sessions.  If you have topic suggestions, contact a Research Services Librarian.

Regent University Law Library presents Integrated Research Methods
Room 213 in the University Library
March 11, 18, and 27 - 7 to 8:15 PM
March 29 - 1 to 2:15 PM

Summer and graduation are fast approaching and it’s time to hone your research skills.  Give us about an hour and we will decrease the time it takes you to find answers to research queries.  Speed is key in a firm environment where fulfilling performance expectations determines if there is an offer at the end of the summer or how quickly you advance as a licensed professional.  Working for a nonprofit or a government.  You will benefit from these sessions too. Sign up at lawref@regent.edu.
Hurry space is limited.

Regent University Law Library presents Legislative History Research
Room 213 in the University Library
March 13 and 20 - 7 to 8:30 PM
March 29 - 3 to 4:30 PM

You never learned this skill unless you asked us already.  Legislative history can play a vital part of researching an issue.  Firms love to assign legislative research history questions to summer or new associates since they now have the extra help.  Rather than meander through the assignment, why not learn it now so as to hit the ground running.  Whether a new hire, summer associate, judicial clerk or with the ACLJ, you will benefit from this 90 minute session. Register at lawref@regent.edu. Hurry, space is limited.

Summer and New Associate Training
April 1, 3, 8, 10, and 15 - 7 to 8:30 PM
April 12 - 1 to 2:30 PM

Are you wondering what questions to expect as a summer or new associate?  Did you place research skills in the category of "I'll learn it later."  If so, it is later.  On average new associates take 18 months to meet the research skill level expectations of law firms.  Firms hate this stat and would love anyone who could beat it.  Why not you?  Get a jump on the competition and attend on one of the following dates in April.  The Law Library faculty will discuss how to approach actual questions previously asked by supervising attorneys at various firms.  Learn also what firms expect from your research abilities. Reserve your spot at lawref@regent.edu. Hurry! Only ten spots available per session.
