Mark your calendars for our last two training sessions of the year: December 6 (Westlaw) and December 8 (Quicklaw), each running from 12:00 – 1:00pm. Stop by the CCLA Library for one or both of the sessions to brush up on your research skills before the end of the year – 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, at 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 Bring your lunch with you, and light refreshments will be provided. I hope to see you there!
