If you're a GW Law student, use the Library's "Request a Class" service to request a research class designed especially for you on any legal research topic.
Law librarians will design a class to meet your needs: preparing to write a research paper, working on a clinical project, researching news and company sources in preparation for a public interest or firm job, or just brushing up on your research skills.
Examples: What is legislative history and how would I prepare a legislative history of a federal statute? How would I find the national laws of member states of the European Union regarding human rights? I’m planning to practice tax (IP, labor, securities, etc.) law, and I want to know the best methods for researching in that area.
Classes are arranged for a minimum of 4 students. There is a maximum of 8 students per class.
Librarians are available Monday – Friday, 8am – 5pm. Select 3 preferred dates & times during which everyone in your group can meet over the next 2-3 weeks. Librarians need a minimum of 2 weeks advance notice for a class. Typical classes are 50 minutes. If you want a shorter or longer class, please indicate the time period in your request.
You will receive a reply from a librarian within two business days of submitting the form, confirming the date time and topic of your class.
