Librarians don’t just love books! We also love technology – especially keeping up to date with tech trends in legal practice. The Law Library would like to invite UNC Law students to join us for our Prep for Practice: Legal Technology Workshop Series for Spring 2018. Each workshop will be led by a UNC law librarian and discuss the implications of a technology development for legal practice. These workshops will focus on tech skills that law students will need to use when they begin working at a firm, court, government agency, or elsewhere.

 

Lunch will be provided at all workshops. Space is limited to 18 students in each workshop, so stop by the Reference Desk to sign-up!
