King Hall Presents 'Research in the Real World' Workshop on May 23

UC Davis School of Law will present the sixth annual "Research in the Real World" workshop on May 23.  The program is open to all law students working summer jobs with law firms, government agencies, public interest groups, or businesses in the Sacramento area.

The free half-day workshop has been a hit with students, offering guidance on time- and cost-saving legal research techniques, resources used in law offices, efficient strategies for general and specialized research projects, online research tips, and best practices.  Recent years have seen approximately 75 students attending the sessions each summer.

The May 23 workshop will feature concurrent sessions on business transactions and California legislative history, followed by parallel sessions on administrative law and California civil litigation, and a panel discussion on "What Employers Expect from Summer Associates" featuring Mary Staats, Manager of Library Services at the firm of Farella, Braun & Martel in San Francisco, Holly Lakatos, Law Librarian with the California Court of Appeal, Third District, and Marguerite Beveridge, Supervising Librarian at the California Department of Justice.

Students interested in attending the free program may register online or contact Rachael Smith for more information at .
