Cool Tools – Simplify Collecting, Organizing, and Citing Your Research (CLR Week of Sept. 8)

The Certificate in Legal Research classes officially begins September 8.  Whether you’re a First Year or a more experienced law student, Karina Condra will teach you awesome tools that will help you collect, organize, and cite your research for one or more projects.  The value of these skills and tools will become increasingly apparent once students start receiving multiple academic and professional research assignments at the same time.  Karina will provide hands-on experience teaching students how to use reference management platform such as Refworks and Zotero.
