Westlaw Training for Attorneys
Wednesday, April 12th

On Wednesday, April 12th at 12pm, the Law Library is virtually hosting a 1-hour, free, and live Westlaw training session.

The training will be conducted by a Westlaw research attorney and will teach you handy tricks and tips for optimizing your time using Westlaw on our library research computers. Novices and experts alike will find this training helpful. It will focus on the needs of solo and small firm practitioners, but everyone is welcome to attend.

A special thanks to the Bar Association of Montgomery County’s Solo/Small Firm Section for their support with this event.

This training will be conducted virtually via Microsoft Teams--Click here to join the training!
