We expect to offer the 8 week online course Introduction to Legal Information Sources as part of the Community Librarian Training Program in October 2009.

A series of in-house LawMatters workshops are just now being planned in various locations. Watch for a workshop titled Legal Jeopardy for Librarians: Using Clicklaw and LawMatters to Answer Legal Reference Questions at the BCLA conference in April, and possibly the Beyond Hope conference in Prince George in June. Come test your knowledge of legal information sources in a game show format!
