Be an efficient and cost-effective legal researcher in your summer position. Biddle is offering two tutorials, one that emphasizes construction effective research strategies and reviews the major legal databases and a second tutorial that will help you to carry out cost-effective legal research by using many of the free and reliable legal research websites that are available.
Check out one of these Biddle tutorials which will orient you to the most frequently used legal materials in these jurisdictions. Going beyond case law and statutes, you will learn about practice materials, legal directories, jurisdiction specific legal newspapers, as well as the use of relevant continuing legal education materials.

Biddle Law Library
University of Pennsylvania Law School
Biddle Law Library is looking for several Penn Law students to work on faculty research projects under the mentorship of lawyer/librarians. A wide range of interdisciplinary assignments will stretch one’s research skills and provide opportunities for writing memoranda. Students will attend faculty colloquia (as available), learn how a dynamic faculty produces excellent scholarship and have an opportunity to earn letters of reference. Excellent writing and interpersonal skills are a must. Some experience in non-law disciplines is a plus.
Looking forward to your summer clerkship? Want to learn more about research materials that will support you in a litigation practice? Or are you preparing to write an interdisciplinary seminar paper? These two upcoming library research tutorials, LITIGATION RESEARCH and RESEARCH USING NON-LAW UNIVERSITY RESOURCES will be of interest. All tutorials carry One L research credit.
