Hi Everyone -

I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to the
Department of the Interior Library on Thursday, May 10th from 10:00 to
11:15 am for a free training session entitled "Litigation Research with
Westlaw," part of our series of free training sessions at the DOI Library.

While attorneys and other researchers may feel powerless to tame the
litigation beast, it is possible to manage litigation research to save
time, money, and frustration. During this course, attendees will learn how
to more efficiently locate relevant briefs, pleadings, motions, dockets,
jury verdicts, settlements, expert materials and comprehensive reports on
experts, judges, and opposing counsel in Westlaw. As our Westlaw trainer
reviews techniques for researching within the vast amount of materials
available on Westlaw, he will delve into procedural issues, the retrieval
of court rules and determining whether you can rely on a case. He will also
examine how you can use Westlaw for briefs, pleadings, motions, and jury

All that are interested are invited.  Please note that the DOI Library is
located in Room 1151 of the Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior
Building, just off the C Street entrance lobby. The Stewart Lee Udall
Department of the Interior Building is located at 1849 C Street, NW in
Washington, DC.  Space for the program in the Library is limited so please
