TANQ Seminar - Legal Research for the Modern Lawyer
Date 15/02/2012
Speaker Gill Black (Head of Knowledge Management, Biggart Baillie LLP)
Seminar Details (1¼ TCPD or CPD time). The mechanics of legal research have changed dramatically over recent years but the desired outcome remains the same – to provide our clients with the best advice based on up-to-date, relevant law. This seminar is designed to provide a refresher on the basics of legal research for the modern lawyer and will consider the following topics: useful free online resources, constructing searches for databases, top tips for users of Westlaw/Lexis (if relevant to the attendees), whether Googling is ever an acceptable form of legal research, when to hit the books rather than head for the PC and, yes, even a look at the good old fashioned citators.
Gill Black is Head of Knowledge Management at Biggart Baillie LLP and, as such, devotes most of her time to devising ways to help lawyers work more efficiently and effectively. Gill is a Chartered Librarian and past Convenor of the Scottish Law Librarians Group which, combined with her LLB and over ten years’ experience in law firms, allows her to offer a wealth of practical knowledge and understanding which she applies in providing training to practitioners and law librarians on legal research. Gill has been published in the Law Society of Scotland on Knowledge Management and legal research topics.
Seminar Time 6pm - 7.15pm (registration from 5.30pm)
