Introduction

Lightning Lessons are short video tutorials prepared by the Wiener-Rogers Law Library.  Each video focuses on a particular aspect of legal research.  Some videos are more basic in their approach, while others focus on topics that are likely to be helpful in writing seminar papers and journal notes and preparing for and undertaking extern or internships or judicial or law firm clerkships.

Remember that you should always feel free to contact the Boyd Law librarians.  Our goal is to support you in your studies and research.  If there are other topics that you would like us to address, please let us know.
