There are four things you must do before we meet on Monday,
1. Register at PACER for Case Search Only
You have to provide a credit card when you register but PACER
doesn't bill for usage under $10 per quarter and we will be under
2. Register for email newsletters for a particular practice area at
both Findlaw and Justia. You will have to register but registration
is free at both sites (newsletters.findlaw.com/;
law.justia.com/subscriptions). Pick a practice area that might be
useful to you.
3. Pick a legal blog to follow. Pick one that you aren't already
familiar with and might actually be useful to you. Be sure to pick
one with frequent posts. For a selection
of blawgs, try the ABA Blawg Directory (www.abajournal.com/blawgs/)
or the list compiled by the State Bar of Texas (Google: State Bar
Texas Law Blogs).
4. Before the first class, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
explaining your choices of newsletters and blog.
Class will be held in the large computer lab on the third floor of
the library. We start at 9:00.
