Wow Your Summer Employer!

The final scheduled Research Redux sessions have been held. Many students told us that they found them helpful. If you still would like to take advantage of this training opportunity, contact the relevant instructor listed below to make arrangements for a session. We will post handouts from the Research Redux sessions on the Law Library website so that you can refer to them over the summer.
