Voluntary library sessions

Now that the external sessions are almost finished (PLC is visiting on Tuesday- there’s still time to sign up!), we are starting a series of voluntary sessions in the library, in which we will offer you guidance on how to conduct legal research.

There are three sessions: one on how to do paper-based research, a second on how to research caselaw using the online databases and a third on how to research legislation using the online databases.  Each session lasts approximately 45 minutes and takes place in the glazed area at the back of the library.  The sessions will be led by either Peter Kargbo or David Battersby.

The first sessions begin tomorrow (Friday 14th Oct) as follows:

11 am Online legislation

12.45 pm Paper-based

2 pm Online caselaw

They will then continue:

Thursday 20th

11 am  Online caselaw

12.45 pm Online legislation

2 pm Paper-based

Wednesday 26th

11 am Paper-based

12.45 am Online caselaw

2 pm Online legislation

Thursday 27th

11 am Online legislation

12.45 pm Online caselaw

2 pm Paper-based

It may be possible to arrange other times that are more convenient for you: please contact David or Peter, if possible as groups.

These sessions are useful for both LPC and GDL students: LPC please note that we will be showing you only search techniques: we are of course unable to help with your PLR research.

If you’d like to sign up for a session, sign up sheets will be appearing later this morning (Thursday) in the library.

Special note to part time, evening and weekend students: special sessions at times more convenient for you will be arranged in due course, in consultation with your tutors- please watch this space!
