Free Legal Research Course Offered Immediately Following Spring Semester: The librarians and library fellows from the Law Library and upper class law students will be teaming up to teach an intensive legal research course once again the week following the conclusion of the spring semester. This course has traditionally been offered as a one credit, pass/fail course (and commonly referred to as “Bootcamp” or Intermediate Legal Research). We have decided to offer this as a non-credit course to law students interested in expanding their legal research knowledge. No academic credit will be awarded for this course, but no tuition or other fees will be charged. It will provide “refresher” training in using primary and secondary legal materials and offer more detailed training in administrative law and legislative history research. The course will also provide extensive WESTLAW, LEXIS and Internet legal research training. This course will be completed in just five days.

This year it will be held Monday, May 18, to Friday, May 22, 2009. Students should expect to be in class, learning and completing exercises each day from about 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (with appropriate breaks and time for lunch). In order to provide guided hands on training, we need to have some idea of how many students will attend the course. Please send an email to the law library via Prof. Shaun Esposito (shaun.esposito@law.arizona.edu) if you wish to attend this class. In your email please indicate if you:

If a greater number of students sign up for this class than can be accommodated, spaces will be allotted on a first-emailed, first-served basis.

NAME THAT TUBE:  We need your creativity and imagination! Along the long red wall leading to the elevators and staircase is a long glass case, fondly called “the tube.” On the tube will be etched a quotation or thought that captures the spirit of Arizona Law. We need your help in suggesting language that captures our love of the law and the quest for justice through law. It can be your language, or you can suggest non-copyrighted words of others. There is not a finite word limit, but you should think about messages less than 250 characters. You can make as many suggestions as you want, as long as you submit your ideas in separate emails by 5:00 p.m. on April 15, 2009. Send all suggestions to NameThatTube@law.arizona.edu. The winning words will be picked by a committee consisting of Dean Toni Massaro, Associate Dean Jane Korn, and Nancy Stanley. The winner receives our heartfelt thanks and the thrill of seeing your words on a really big wall.
