Be an efficient and cost-effective legal researcher in your summer position. Biddle is offering three tutorials: one that emphasizes effective research strategies; one that highlights many of the free and reliable legal research websites available; and a final prepare-to-practice session that reviews how to approach common summer assignments effectively. Come check them out!
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.

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.

In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Penn Law faculty are hosting a symposium on January 14, 2015 entitled: “The Civil Rights Act of 1964 at 50: Looking Back and Looking Ahead.” The Biddle Law Library is pleased to supplement this discussion with a bibliography.
Exam time is fast approaching. Starting December 6th, Biddle will be open 24-hours, until exams end on Friday, December 19th. Please note that the library has restricted access during this time. Here is a quick review of three library services students may need: the Study Room Online Reservation System; closed reserve materials; and past exams.
In an article in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Penn students called ABC’s series How to Get Away With Murder “over-the-top and sometimes unrealistic.” Biddle takes a look at the new series, and some of the other legal dramas available from the video collection.
