Every year LLNE runs the Legal Research Instruction Program, offering legal research training to folks in the community, from technical services librarians to library students, for the amazingly low price of $150.00. This was my first year administering the program, and it made me realize how much it depends on the incredible support of LLNE members. So I want to take a moment to thank those who made this awesome program happen:
- Claire DeMarco from Harvard, for giving everyone a great overview of the legal system.
- Rick Buckingham from Suffolk, for teaching the ins-and-outs of caselaw research
- Kristin McCarthy from New England Law, for a nifty overview of statutes
- Steven Alexandre de Costa from Boston University, for a dive into administrative law (and additionally, for inspiring at least one of our attendees to comment on proposed administrative law through regulations.gov)
And last, but certainly not least, a huge thank you to Ron Wheeler and Suffolk University Law Library for hosting the Legal Research Instruction Program. In all, we had 9 students, gave out 2 scholarships, and ran 6 individual sessions. Thank You!
