Coming soon: research week!

Coming soon: research week!

What comes after Love Your Library Fest? Research weeks! In October and again in November, your HLS librarians will be offering a week full of classes on different aspects of research–law-related topics and beyond. We promise there will be less biting than Shark Week, although we will be serving snacks or lunch at all sessions.

Registration is helpful, but not required–feel free to just show up!

Our first week of classes will happen the week of October 26. Sign up for any and all sessions that interest you at the links below, and stay tuned for more info on the week of November 16!
