SEARCH SMARTER workshop TOMORROW, 10/18, from 4:30 – 5:30 in LAC 111!

Barry students! We know you have midterms going on, but you also have open memos, appellate briefs, and upper-level papers to write. Join Reference Librarian Diana Botluk TOMORROW, Wednesday, 10/18, from 4:30 to 5:30 PM in LAC 111, for SEARCH SMARTER, her power searching workshop where she helps students find the perfect cases for their research.

It’s the second week in October…

The Supreme Court has been back in session for one week, and the Euliano Law Library has pulled together some resources for following Supreme Court activity this term.

For summaries and discussions of all of the cases set to be heard by the Supreme Court this term, see the October 2 issue of the Preview of United States Supreme Court Cases, an ABA publication available to the Barry Law community via HeinOnline.

Other published previews of the 2017-2018 Supreme Court term include:

We are also looking forward to the implementation of the Court’s new electronic filing system on November 13. Once the system is live, virtually all new filings will be available for free on the Court’s web site.

Please contact us if you have questions about any of the above resources or you would like assistance with Supreme Court research.
