US Legal Information

Conducting research across the laws of an unfamiliar jurisdiction can be daunting. Alison Shea will provide a general overview of US legal research and US primary sources, including statutes, cases and regulations. You'll have the chance to submit specific questions or issues that you may have encountered in the past regarding US legal research and these will be worked in to the general presentation.
