This course will introduce participants to the basics of legal research. The course will include practical instructions for using public legal databases to look up statutes and cases relevant to unions. It will also provide a general framework for understanding how precedent develops. Ultimately, participants will emerge with the tools to answer questions about current arbitral and labour board case law.

PLEASE NOTE: Participants are asked to bring a laptop computer to class. You will also need to bring your own extension cord. If any participants do not have access to a laptop, please contact the VDLC office for us to put you in touch with the facilitator.
