Even though we may be living in extraordinary times, particularly for the justice sector, the staff of the CCLA Library are still here for you. This is especially true for this year’s summer and articling students. Normally, we invite students to come to the CCLA to meet us, have a tour of our space, and learn about our library services. As we don’t have a projected re-opening date, we aren’t able to invite students over, but we still very much want to meet them. Working with students is one of our favourite and most important jobs, so if you don’t read any further in this blog post, please pass along our email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to your students!
If you will be taking on students (or already have), for either a summer term or for an articling year, please let us know! Student memberships in the CCLA are available – find out more and register here. However, if you aren’t sure that you’ll be signing your students up for membership, we’d still be grateful if you could send us a quick note with the names and emails of your students so that we can reach out to them and let them know about the CCLA Library.
As always, please encourage your students to sign up for our free email newsletter at this link. The CCLA News weekly newsletter and special announcements are a vital form of connection for the Ottawa legal community, and we’d love to have them on our list.
HeadStart Ottawa: Legal Research for Articling and LPP Students
In previous years, we’ve held a session exclusively for articling and LPP students called “HeadStart Ottawa.” While we may not have access to our physical space this year, we are delighted to announce that we will be planning a virtual HeadStart program for later this summer. Details on this free session will be available soon, so keep an eye out for that!
