Event Type

Legal Research Skills
New Hunt’s House, King’s College London
2pm (registration from 1.30) Thursday 27th November.

Workshop facilitator: Gerry Power, Access Librarian, Institute of Advanced Legal Studies

The event is an introductory workshop on legal research. It is aimed at those who are new to legal research, or who would like a refresher course – for example people working on enquiry desks. It will cover good freely available resources on the internet, and does not include subscription services such as Lexis or Westlaw.

Participants will do a number of exercises on a PC to search and browse free internet sources for case law, legislation, and journal articles. They will examine search results to identify the main features of judgments and statutes. They will also do a number of exercises from a workbook to practise their searching and navigating of the legal web. In this way, they will explore a number of prominent free resources for UK jurisdictions and for the European Union.

Some subject searching will also be possible on topics such as human rights, equal opportunities, special needs & disability, health & safety, copyright, and data protection. The workshop will be an opportunity for participants to exchange ideas and tips on using the legal web.
