Time: 12:30 - 1:10
pm
Location: Law Classroom, Room 101


You've selected a class that sounded interesting. A few days into it and you realize your grade is based on a scholarly paper due at the end of the semester. How do you transform the lectures you are receiving and all the information into a paper? Join the Law Library Faculty as they help you with tips on gathering information, selecting a topic, and mastering this daunting task. Workshop attendees will be provided with free lunch.

 

Workshop: New in Town? I can help!: Government information for everyday life

Need help finding the perfect apartment or a wonderful doctor? How about a good part-time job? From health to safety to voting, let me show you some government resources that can help ease the stress of getting settled in a new city. Workshop attendees will be provided with free lunch.

 

Workshop: HeinOnline: Your Answer to Life
Date: Oct. 21, 2014 (Tuesday)
Time: 12:30 - 1:10
pm
Location: Law Classroom, Room 103


Would you like to find out how and why people with Japanese ancestry were prohibited from the Pacific coast in 1942? What was the first regulation published in the Federal Register? Would you like a drawing of Lord Chief Justice Cockburn, which was published in the earliest law review published in America? Where would you go if the answers were not on LexisNexis, Westlaw, or Bloomberg Law? Answers to all the above can be found in a wonderful database called HeinOnline. Workshop attendees will be provided with free lunch.

 

Workshop: Google for Lawyers
Date: Oct. 28, 2014 (Tuesday)
Time: 12:30 - 1:10
pm
Location: Law Classroom, Room 103


Fact finding on the Internet is an important lawyering skill. Attorneys have used information they found in a Google search to benefit their cases, and judges are admitting information on the Internet into evidence. Everyone uses Google, but how many of us really know how to use Google effectively—not only for research during law school, but also in your future law practice? If you think you know everything about searching on Google, come to this workshop to find out if that’s the case. We will cover essential Google search tips, features, and much more. Workshop attendees will be provided with free lunch.

 

Workshop: Free and Low Cost Legal Research
Date: Nov. 4, 2014 (Tuesday)
Time: 12:30 - 1:10
pm
Location: Law Classroom, Room 103


Westlaw and LexisNexis come with tuition… while you are a student. This workshop covers free and low cost alternatives, and the balance between saving time and saving money. Come learn about strategies for using and dealing with Lexis and Westlaw and explore print and low cost electronic alternatives. Workshop attendees will be provided with free lunch.

 

Workshop: How to Run a Website for Small Firms and Solos
Date: Nov. 11, 2014 (Tuesday)
Time: 12:30 - 1:10
pm
Location: Law Classroom, Room 103


Websites are key for advertising.  You can use a website as a resume, or to advertise a law practice after you are admitted to the bar.  This workshop will give you information to assist in working with a web developer to make a website. Learn how to register a URL, acquire hosting, and selecting a web developer.  Get tips on how to effectively use a developer, who may not be familiar with you or with rules of professional conduct related to advertising.  Seeing the basics once can help you to avoid traps down the road and save you money when you have to do this later on.

 

If you would like to attend a particular workshop, please contact Professor Martinez at mmartinez17@stmarytx.edu so that he may plan for refreshments.
