We know this year has been hard for everyone and many of you may be looking for ways to save money in 2021. A subscription to the Law Library is an investment in your legal practice. Here’s why.
Free CLEs – now virtual! We make it our goal to host at least 10 CLEs per year covering a wide range of topics from Intellectual Property to Juvenile Court to SCOTUS reviews and more. We also strive to offer at least one hour of Professional Conduct credit per year. And with our new, ever-expanding library of self-study CLEs, we make it easier than ever to get your required credit while enhancing your legal practice skills.
Remote research. Coming down to the Courthouse on a day when you don’t have court really isn’t feasible for most people right now. Most of our subscribers can access our databases (including Westlaw! Click here to find out more) at any time to conduct their own research from the comfort of their homes or offices.
All of our subscribers can email our reference box during regular business hours and one of our trained librarians will perform searches, send cases, treatise sections, annotated statutes, historical documents and more!
Onsite research. Our computer lab has been rearranged to allow for social distancing and masks are required at all times. Two of our private meeting rooms have also been equipped with computers with full access to our databases for those who prefer solo researching.
Onsite access to videoconferencing equipment. Let’s face it, not everyone has Butler County Jail in their contacts for a Zoom call. Subscribers can use our Polycom videoconferencing equipment to connect with inmates incarcerated at multiple corrections facilities, Skype or Zoom into a courtroom, GoTo(a)Meeting and more.
Book circulation. Baldwin’s, Anderson’s, Wigmore, Mauet, Corbin, OJUR, AMJUR, Page’s, all the great legal texts you rely on are here at the library and most of them can be checked out by subscribers.
Meeting rooms. Though in-person meetings are obviously difficult at the moment, we know that sometimes it is necessary to meet clients face-to-face. To accommodate that, our meeting rooms have been configured to comply with social distancing guidelines and are cleaned by library staff after each use.
Someone who’s got your back. We get it. This year has been rough. Reports of stress and anxiety are at an all-time high. The Law Library offers a safe haven in the Courthouse, a quiet place to work, think, breathe, relax. We offer remote reference assistance for the times when you need a form or some basic research or case law but don’t want to have to venture out to get it. We offer tech support as you try to navigate this entirely online existence we currently inhabit. And when this is all over, we’ll go back to offering the in-person CLEs, the coffee, hot chocolate and snacks, the comradery of attorneys gathering to argue a case, the normalcy of everyday life.
Until then, we’ve got you.
