Many courses have paper requirements or drafting exercises. Librarians are available to guest lecture to introduce students to class subject-specific resources. Topics we have presented on include:
|administrative law||insurance law||tax law|
|fact investigations||international arbitration|
|family law||international law|
|immigration law||statutes & legislative history|
Law librarians can create web research guides or handouts that recommend and describe resources related to class assignments. For example, see this guide for the Advanced Insurance Law class. Liaisons can provide further information.
The Law Library has access to recorded streams of Pennsylvania Court oral arguments through the Pennsylvania Cable Network. Many oral argument proceedings from the PA Commonwealth, Superior, and Supreme Courts are available for viewing a few days after they occur. Using this resource, faculty can expose their students to actual appellate proceedings as a part of class, or organize a group viewing of a specific argument during a lunch break. If you are interested in exploring how we can set up a stream viewing for you, please contact your library liaison.
