As a tutor who works with paralegal, criminal justice, and law students, I am looking forward to learning more about the Westlaw database from the School of Legal Studies! I already know how to show students through the case citations and how to look up legal terms using Black’s Law Dictionary (instead of a general use dictionary or a not-so-rigorously edited online dictionary), but there seems like so much more I could know about Westlaw. Thanks for posting this list of upcoming workshop opportunities!
