On Monday, September 9th, the law librarians will offer a Briefings session on Casemaker, the electronic legal research tool provided free of charge to members of the South Carolina Bar. With this resource, attorneys have access at the federal and state (50) jurisdictions to the primary sources of law: cases, statutes and regulations. The federal library provides access to opinions from all circuit courts, the United States Supreme Court, and selected specialty courts such as Bankruptcy and Claims. Federal session laws and the United States Code are also provided as is the Federal Register and Code of Federal Regulations. The South Carolina library provides access to Attorney General and Bar Ethics opinions, cases from the South Carolina Court of Appeals and the South Carolina Supreme Court, the South Carolina Code of Laws, the South Carolina Constitution, South Carolina municipal codes, the South Carolina Rules of Professional Conduct, the South Carolina Acts and Joint Resolutions, and the South Carolina Lawyer. All of these libraries can be searched, via a single google tool bar, by keyword, citation, party name, section number, and docket number.
Please join us on Monday at 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. or at 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. in the library, Room 101A, for more information. RSVP on TWEN under Charleston School of Law All–Sign Up Sheets. We’ll have pizza and soda.
