R.A. research skills workshop

Please join us for a library research skills workshop on Thursday, May 3, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Room 2027.

While this session is geared primarily to help Research Assistants who will be involved in in-depth research projects during the summer, all students who wish to improve their research skills are welcome.

Legal research basics will be briefly covered and students will also have the opportunity to learn some advanced research skills.

The schedule for the workshop is as follows:

10:00-10:40 Secondary sources  

10:45-11:20 Legislation

11:25-12:00 Caselaw and Zotero

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

1:05-2:00 Lexis Advance Quicklaw 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.

To register please send a message to library@osgoode.yorku.ca with R.A.research skills workshop in the subject line. Please let us know if you will be working as a Research Assistant this summer.

We look forward to seeing you!
