HeadStart Ottawa: Legal Research for Articling and LPP Students 2017

We’re excited to bring back our annual HeadStart legal research session again this year! Every year we put on this three-hour morning training seminar on legal research, emphasizing the fundamental research skills that students will need to ensure successful articling and a rewarding legal career.

This year the session will take place on Friday, August 18, 2017 from 9:00 am to 12:30 PM. Registration will begin at 8:30 am on the 3rd floor of the courthouse across from the elevators.

The program will focus on practical research tips and will cover:

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

The cost of registration – only $25 plus HST – also includes a year of CCLA Student Membership and an invaluable research guide! To register (or to register on behalf of your students), please click here!

If you are already a CCLA student member, please sign in to the site before proceeding and the HeadStart registration will be free.


Following our HeadStart program, the CCLA would like to invite all 2017-2018 articling and LPP students to a Luncheon in the CCLA Library, from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm. This informal time will give attendees the chance to network with other new articling and LPP students here in Ottawa, take a tour of the CCLA Library, and meet the CCLA Staff. There is no additional cost for attending the lunch. If you would like to attend only the lunch, please RSVP with Brenda Lauritzen.
