September 7: Seattle - Lean Lawyering: Low Cost Legal Research

Legal research is a cost you can reduce and better manage by using low cost and free legal research resources like Casemaker and WSBA Deskbooks. Additionally, you may already have another great resource hiding out in your wallet - your library card! Join us as we learn about the databases available for legal research at local public libraries, as well as other great cost reducing options for your practice.
This informative CLE will be led by BARBARA SWATT-ENGSTROM. Barbara is the Executive Director of the Public Law Library of King County and an Adjunct Professor at Seattle University School of Law, teaching classes on advanced legal research.
