Have you ever wanted to have your article or paper published? Have you ever thought about entering a student writing contest? Do you know some contests have monetary prizes?
The Associate Dean for Intellectual Life and Director of Legal Writing, Research and Written Advocacy, invite you to the Student Scholarship Reception to celebrate Suffolk Law’s launch of a new writing portal on the Law School website (http://www.law.suffolk.edu/library/services/competitions/) that provides information on writing competitions, and a list of resources that can help students write papers for publication. The information is valuable to students who are just beginning a writing project and also to students who have written an excellent paper in a class that could be publishable. Students will also meet people who can help them with researching and writing articles.
Come to a 30-minute research workshop! These short workshops are designed to sharpen your research skills and give you an edge when you’re asked to do research at your summer jobs and beyond.
The law library will be holding the following five workshops:
- Massachusetts Research 101: Must-Know Resources
- Research in the Real World: Practical Tips for Law Firm Survival
- Suffolk Research Databases: Quality Research Without Westlaw & Lexis
- Free Online Resources: Great Go-To Resources When Cost & Availability Are on Your Mind
- Advanced Legal Research: Resources & Techniques Used by Research Pros
