Brush up on your research skills at the library in March by attending our next two training sessions: March 1 (Westlaw) and March 28 (Quicklaw), each running from 12:00 – 1:00pm. Stop by the CCLA Library for one or both of the sessions, and count it towards your CPD hours! Best of all, it’s free!
As always, the sessions are held in the CCLA Library, located in Room 2004 on the main floor of the Ottawa Courthouse, 161 Elgin Street. If you would like to attend either of the following, or if you have any questions at all, drop me a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Walk-ins are also welcome. Bring your lunch with you!

What’s New on Quicklaw; Wednesday, March 28th, 12:00 to 1:00 PM, CCLA Library
