Law Librarians Teach Every Week
Although we have no scheduled special research training sessions this week, our law librarians continue their teaching efforts. Susan Boland, Ron Jones, and Ken Hirsh are leading the Advanced Legal Research Class, where this week they will be putting the students to work on constitutional history research and statutory research. The ALR course is taught as a “flipped classroom” and in a team learning concept. The former simply means that students are required to do their reading and view lectures via webinars before the class period, and during class they work on research exercises under the guidance of the instructors. The latter means that students work together in teams, providing them both with extra sets of minds in solving problems and experience in a collaborative work environment.
Shannon Kemen and Ken Hirsh meet with a small group of students in Technology in the Law Practice. This week Scott Kane, UC Law ’97 and partner at Squire Patton Boggs will lead a session on e-discovery. Scott is an expert in discovery and graciously lends his time to us each this year. He also is a member of the College of Law’s Board of Visitors.
