Are you a non-J.D. law librarian who must interact on a daily basis with attorneys, judges, law students and law professors? Familiarize yourself with basics of the American legal system by attending the Professional Development program "Law for the Non-J.D." July 12 to July 13 in Minneapolis.
Participants will learn how their law-trained patrons approach legal problems on specific topics, including preliminary analysis and delineation of key issues. The program will review topics such as the analytical structure used in the study and practice of law, the basic principles of legal reasoning and argument, key research methods and resources for major practice areas, and the role attorneys play in the development and evolution of law.
