HeadStart 2017

Edmonton Law Libraries Association Presents the 15th Annual HeadStart: Finding the Law Program

The Edmonton Law Libraries Association invites registrations for the 2016 HeadStart program, to be held June 15-16, 2017.

HeadStart is a legal research program for articling students and those who would like to brush up on the legal research basics. From reference request to memo, follow the trail of legal research, including: finding articles, books, case law, and legislation while avoiding unnecessary costs. Participants will learn from law librarians and legal professionals who will provide tips, tricks, and inside information on how to find materials, select the most relevant resources, and organize your research memo.

Give us your time and we will give you a HeadStart!
