The Library’s Tech Group, working with the SBA Tech Committee, has set up a series of 15 minute weekly presentations for the rest of this semester, scheduled for 3:00 on Wednesdays in room 305. We’re happy to answer questions, too, and will have cookies!
Our goal is to help give you tools that will make your life easier as a student, but be useful for you in the future in your legal career as well.
