CALL Institute Day 2014 — Bridging the Gap Between Law School and Practice

 Please come and join the 2014 CALL Institute Day!

Our topic for this year’s Institute Day is “Bridging the Gap between Law School and Practice:  Skills Necessary for Producing Practice-Ready Attorneys.”  There will be brief roundtable presentations from large law firm panelists, public law libraries and resource center panelists, and academic law librarian panelists.  We hope to create an inventory of necessary research skills for practice through the small group discussions during the last hour of the event.    Hope to see you there!
