Information for 2013-2014 Articling Students

The CCLA would like to welcome all new articling students in the Ottawa area! In this email, we’ve put together the details on some new sessions we’ve developed exclusively for our 2013-2014 students, as well as additional information to assist in your articling year.

HeadStart: Legal Research Training for Articling Students

The CCLA Library is extremely excited to announce HeadStart Ottawa. This comprehensive legal research training seminar will provide students with all the fundamental research skills required to ensure successful articling and a rewarding legal career! The academic session, to take place on Friday, August 16, 2013 from 9:00am – 12:15pm, will focus on practical tips and will cover:

–  Finding and Updating Legislation
–  Case Law Research
–  Secondary Sources
–  Precedents
–  Tips for Efficient Research & Bad Habits to Avoid

Even better, the cost of registration – only $25 – also includes CCLA Student Membership and an invaluable research guide!

Registration for this event is already filling up! Do not delay in sending in your RSVP.

Articling Students Luncheon

Following our HeadStart program, the CCLA is excited to invite all 2013 – 2014 articling students to a luncheon in the CCLA Library, from 12:15pm to 1:00pm. This informal time will give attendees the chance to network with other new articling students here in Ottawa, take a tour of the CCLA Library, sign up for a CCLA student membership, and meet the CCLA Staff as well as some of the members of our Young Lawyers Committee! There is no cost for attending the lunch, but please RSVP by August 5 so that we may cater for the appropriate number.

Tours of the CCLA Library

If you’re unable to attend either of these sessions, but would like a tour of the Library to meet our staff and learn about the services and resources we offer, consider attending one of our library tours! Tours are held at 10:30 AM every Tuesday and Thursday in September and August. Please RSVP for a time and date that works for you. If these options won’t work, please email Brenda Lauritzen to schedule another time.

Additional Information

CCLA student memberships are available for your articling term! You do not need to be a member to use the CCLA Library, but you will need to should you wish to access the library after hours. It also provides discounts at great member partners, offers discounted rates for CCLA programming, and connects you to our great local legal community. You can register online, or get in contact with our Membership Services Assistant, Meghan Wilmott.

If this email has been forwarded along to you, and you would like to join our email list so that you can receive our emails directly, please click here. This list is free and is not connected to CCLA membership. You can modify your subscription preferences at any time.

The CCLA Articling Students and New Lawyers Committee is hard at work planning sessions for the coming year that are geared to your interests. Stay tuned for news on upcoming social events and continuing professional development opportunities!

Older LSUC CPD Materials Now Available Online Free of Charge

Some of you might be familiar with the Law Society’s AccessCLE service, which is a database that provides electronic PDF access to papers and materials from LSUC events since 2004. Previously this service came with an access premium, but we’re excited to inform you that you can now print and download any articles that are older than 18 months – free of charge! Articles newer than the 18 month time frame will still be available on a pay-per-view basis.

These articles are a great place to find recent commentary, forms, and cases concerning current issues in the legal profession. You can search or browse them from the link above, or alternatively through the Great Library’s integrated catalogue Infolocate.

CCLA members also already have access to CCLA CPD materials since 2001, through our Conference Papers Database.

Prefer browsing in print? Don’t worry, the CCLA library still collects those grey binders you know and love.
