The Law Library offers Research Certificate Seminars for C|M|LAW students.  Presented by our team of research librarians, the Seminars often include hands-on research examples.  Seminars discuss resources critical to successful legal practice and scholarly writing, as well as focus on research skills law firms and courts are seeking when hiring associates and clerks. 

Attendees of each hour-long Seminar earn 25 points toward a Law Library Research Certificate.  Certificates are awarded to students with 100 Seminar points.

Research Certificate Seminar topics include:

  • Ohio Law Research
  • Bloomberg/LexisNexis/Westlaw Refreshers
  • Free/Cost-Effective Legal Research on the Web
  • Research Strategies
  • Getting Ready To Clerk (how to handle typical research assignments)
  • Scholarly Writing
  • Administrative Law Research
  • Legislative History Research
  • Health Law Research
