LLNE Legal Research Instruction Program

Announcing the 2021 LLNE Legal Research Instruction Program

The 2021 legal research instruction program is going to be run entirely online. It will be a combination of synchronous and asynchronous instruction, using zoom, the various google tools, video instruction, and the imagination of the great teaching librarians of the Law Librarians of New England.

The class will be run on six Wednesday evenings from March 17th through April 22nd. The times of the synchronous class will vary based on the amount of asynchronous instruction for each topic, but each Wednesday will be at least one hour of synchronous online instruction. To register, fill out this google form

Instruction will include:

· Overview of the US legal system
