Hope you enjoyed your spring break and are ready to get back into the swing of things!
Still working on your ALWRs, MSJs, or other legal research projects? Next week, we are offering Workshops in low cost legal research because sometimes Westlaw and LexisNexis do not provide all the answers.
Here is a fun look at legal research: Research tips; Why you should take breaks!; Westlaw vs.LexisNexis
Are you taking the MPRE this weekend? Then check out the materials we have available for your last minute studying.
Not sure what to do over spring break? The librarians will be here all week, ready to help you with your ALWR and LP research. If you’re looking to get out of the library and do something around town, check out Goby, a search engine designed specifically for finding things to do, no matter where you are!
Many of you have mid-term exams next week, so it might be a good idea to buckle down and hit the books this weekend! Remember that study aids from the Academic Success Collection can be checked out for 3 days at a time. Also, try to get some rest in between those marathon study sessions.
However, for those of you who are fortunate enough not to have mid-term exams and would like a fun, action-filled weekend, there are a couple of options! You could head to Daytona for the Daytona 500, or catch the NBA All-Stars in action in Orlando.
What’s a blawg? A blawg is a legal blog. there are a few directories of blawgs including a directory from the ABA.
The first blawg everyone should be following is Law and the Multiverse. James Daily and Ryan Davidson look through the world of comics, sci fi, and other fiction to answer the legal issues presented. For example, see the post on alter egos. It’s a fun way to review legal issues and to see there are legal issues everywhere!
Second, a more serious blawg is Jotwell, where recently published law journal and law review articles are reviewed. A great place to start looking for recent articles in your ALWR topic area!
