Excited about your summer placement? Worried about the kind of work you will be asked to do? Well, the library has just the program for you! Beginning Friday, March 25th when all 1Ls and 2Ls log in to Blackboard they will see a new Board – Prepare to Practice 2022. Prepare to Practice is a series of video lectures designed to either give an more detailed explanation of some area of research covered in Legal Research I & II, or topics not covered in that class.
Going to a NGO or other non-profit organization this summer? Check out Alex Clay Hutchings’ lecture on Public Policy & Non-Profit Research. Interested in learning about free or low-cost legal search engines? Then listen as Molly Lentz-Meyer takes you Beyond Lexis and Westlaw. Working in Virginia this summer? Joyce Manna Janto will assure you that Virginia is for Lawyers as she guides you through the intricacies of Virginia legal research. Or perhaps you will be interested in learning how to update a legal document by watching Sam Cabo as she outlines How to Update the Law. These videos will be available all summer long so feel free to come back to them as your summer placement unfolds.
Another thing to consider is that viewing at least one of these videos is a requirement for the summer Public Service Stipend.
