Let’s be honest, being able to google case names does not count as legal research. Legal research can be a lot more complicated, frustrating and time consuming. So that’s why DLSS Geelong is running 2 legal research workshops for you all to attend!
Anyone and everyone will benefit from these. Looking to do a clerkship this year or about to graduate and want to brush up on your skills? Filling your diary with assignment due dates and feeling a little overwhelmed? Just can’t remember what you learnt in Legal Principles and Skills all those years ago? We got you.
We are privileged to have on board Law Librarian, Michelle Bendall, in conjunction with Helen Wood to answer all of your burning questions and to assist you in further developing the skills you have acquired throughout your degree.
The first session will focus on researching and knowing your way around legislation. Session 1 will be held at the Deakin Waterfront Campus Library – Training Room (Computer Lab) on Wednesday the 2nd of August from 11.00am until 1.00pm.

The second session will be more focussed on researching case law and other materials that will be useful to you. Session 2 will be held at Deakin Waterfront Campus, D3.206 on Wednesday the 9th of August from 11.am until 1.00pm.
