Prepare for Practice

Posted by Library Blog on 01/07/2016 at 09:32 AM

According to a New York Daily News article, a Harvard study about seniors “found that drinking two cups of hot chocolate a day could help sharpen cognitive skills.” This is good news for all of you chocoholics and particularly good news this week when the librarians will be staffing an information table and serving hot chocolate outside the Law School Bistro on January 13th and January 14th from 11 am – 1 pm.

The librarians will be distributing information about the Prepare for Practice Certification Program. The Prepare for Practice Certification Program is designed to refresh and enhance students' legal research skills in preparation for summer and permanent jobs. If you complete the certification program requirements you can receive a Certificate in Legal Research Skills for Practice which can distinguish your resume from others.

For the first time, we will be offering some of the classes online. To learn more about the classes and how to complete certification, stop by the library’s table in the Law School Bistro area (and join us for some hot cocoa!) on January 13th and January 14th from 11 am – 1 pm.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the reference librarians at lawlibraryhelp@rwu.edu.
