Looking for some free online learning options while working from home? Here’s a couple you might like to consider.
Legal research at the Law Library
The Law Library of Victoria has two free online courses for Victorian legal practitioners to help brush up on your case law and legislation research skills. You can access the course through the Law Library of Victoria website’s Legal research eLearning page for registered users.
Each unit is self-paced and can be completed when it works for you. They contain step by step instructions, information on the use of different platforms, tips on search techniques, links to further information and short quizzes to check understanding.
If you are a Victorian legal practitioner and have not yet registered as a user on the Law Library of Victoria website you can do that by visiting the Register User Service page, click on the request registration button and fill in the form.
To access the online courses from the front page of the Law Library of Victoria website go to the Research page and Research Skills subpage.
