2018 GPLLA Legal Research Course

March 13, 2018

Are you relatively new to legal research? Unfamiliar with some of the core sources or methods used when finding the law? Just looking to brush up your skills? We are pleased to announce the GPLLA Legal Research Course for 2018:

Dates: Tuesdays, April 4 – May 9
Time: 5:15-6:30 p.m.
Location: Online (live and recorded)
Registration: $50 for non-students / $25 for students (Register Here)

This 6-week introductory legal research course is geared towards professionals and students interested in learning the basics of legal research or needing a refresher. The course will be presented by instructors from various Philadelphia area law schools and firms. Topics to be covered include an introduction to the legal system, statutory research, researching case law, using secondary sources, researching administrative law, and using paid and free services to locate the law. Each session will cover both federal and Pennsylvania-specific materials, so participants will be able to start familiarizing themselves with researching in both jurisdictions after each session.

The course will be presented online live using Zoom, and participants will be able to access videos of each session and related materials on demand as well. Westlaw and Lexis Advance have agreed to supply temporary accounts to all participants for the duration of the course. Specific technical requirements will be emailed to participants closer to the course start date.

 Registration for the course is $50 for non-students and $25 for students. Payment may be submitted via check or PayPal. Specific payment instructions are included on the registration form, which may be accessed by clicking here.

 Feel free to share this announcement with anyone you think might benefit from taking this course, regardless of their affiliation with GPLLA. If you have any questions, please contact Ben Carlson (
