11:25-12:00 Caselaw and Zotero

12:10-1:00 Lunch and WestlawNext Canada training

Though we highly recommend attendance at all sessions, students are welcome to attend those sessions that are most useful to them.

A morning snack will be sponsored by Lexis Nexis and Thomson Reuters will be sponsoring lunch.
