Those who are looking to refresh their legal research skills should consider heading over to Courthouse Libraries BC this summer.
Both the Vancouver library and regional libraries offer tailored tours of the library and orientations to print and online products, both customized to suit individual interests. Visitors to the Vancouver Library can currently sign up for a one-hour, one-on-one training session on Carswell’s LawSource at a number of different dates and times scheduled in July and August.
LawSource contains all cases published in Carswell topical law reports, along with the Canadian Encyclopedic Digest, Canadian Abridgment, KeyCite citator, and Words & Phrases. The Library’s subscription to LawSource is free to use within all the Courthouse libraries. These sessions are accredited towards your Law Society CPD.
Other sessions may become available; interested persons should contact the library to be notified of updates.
