Colorado Practice Research
Practice materials include such resources as the Colorado Practice Series, Continuing Legal Education (CLE) publications, specialty handbooks and rulebooks, practitioner guides by subject, jury instructions, litigation and transactional manuals, and forms publications, among others. These serve not only as quick reference guides for practitioners, but also as superior tools for any attorney wanting, or needing, to take on somewhat unfamiliar matters. Learning continues after law school and being armed with these resources will make you a better lawyer.
The purpose of this class is to introduce these types of resources, instruct on their proper usage, and show how one can find these types of resources later with ease and confidence. We will work through the most important resources among these so that everyone starts to feel comfortable using them now (and hopefully will in their internships, summer associate positions, etc.)!
If anyone has any questions, by all means feel free to get in touch with me, or any of the librarians. We are here to help!
