Prepare to Practice 2018
Columbia Law Library's workshop series designed to prepare you for your summer work experience, pro bono projects, and jobs. Stop by JGH 646 on Mondays between March 19 and April 23 from 12:10pm and 1:10pm to learn about researching specific topics in the law and a non-pizza lunch. This week's topic:
Doomsday Prepping: Free and Low-Cost Legal Research Tools
What would you do if Westlaw, Lexis Advance, and Bloomberg Law were all unavailable? What if you couldn’t use them because they’re too expensive? Don’t panic--there are other options. Services like Fastcase, Casemaker, and even Google Scholar can prevent the legal research apocalypse. Grab your bug-out bag and best bookmarking tool. We’re building a legal research survival kit! Don’t be caught without a plan.
Learn about research services other than the "big 3."
Leave with a list of resources to find law on the cheap.
