Each semester law librarians offer a series of research workshops intended to reinforce and sharpen law students' legal research skills. New topics are frequently added. The current and prior workshop presentations are available here. To register for a workshop or suggest a training topic, contact Margaret Clark via email or phone 850.644.9244.
The reference librarians have written a series of Research Guides designed to assist students in accessing databases and conducting legal research. The guides identify electronic and print sources relevant in a particular subject area. For a complete list of Research Guides, click here.
Jump Start sessions are designed to prepare law students for summer clerking and externships. These informal, open-ended sessions address students' individual research needs and prospective practice goals in a one-on-one or small group setting. The Jump Start sessions assist students in making the transition from academic researcher to practitioner. Students learn what they need to know-anything from formbooks, legislative history, state and federal administrative law, or other areas. Sessions generally last an hour. To schedule a Jump Start, contact a librarian via e-mail or phone 850.644.7479.
