Study Smarter workshop THIS THURSDAY, 1/25!

The Law Library is presenting its first research workshop of the semester: Study Smarter, this Thursday, 1/25, from 4:45 to 5:45 PM in LAC 110.  Your Law Librarians will introduce students to tips, tricks, tools, and techniques to help you excel in your classes, on your exams (from 1L midterms all the way to the Bar Exam), and even beyond law school.

We are offering one professionalism credit for all who attend, as an incentive.

If you can, please RSVP to by Wednesday, 1/24, to give us an idea of how many people to expect.

Thank you, and we’ll see you at Study Smarter!
