Library Services for Alumni Featured in Latest Issue of The Gargoyle

The latest edition of The Gargoyle, the UW Madison Law School alumni magazine, is now available online.

On a research note, I'd like to draw your attention to an article I contributed about the various library services available to UW Law School alumni and others (see page 8). This includes document delivery, databases, current awareness services, and reference assistance.

Other highlights from this Summer 2007 issue include:

  • Constitutional Law in Action
    Professors Richard Monette, Heinz Klug, and Brady Williamson have used their expertise in constitutional law in a very concrete way: helping nations to create their own constitutions.

  • Clinical Legal Education: It's For All Kinds of Lawyers
    Contrary to the misconception that clinical legal education always involves criminal law, the Law School's 13 clinics help students develop professionalism and skills for all fields of law.

  • How I Got Here
    Professor Marygold Melli decided in eighth grade that she wanted to be a lawyer. She met -- and surmounted -- challenges all along the way from a legal profession that wasn't ready to admit women.

  • A Plan Called LRAP
    Careers in public interest law can seem out of reach for graduates carrying the burden of debt that grew as they paid for their education. The Law School is building a Loan Repayment Assistance Program to help out.

Comments

I shared your article with the College of Engineering department of external relations, and was able to get the green light on a similar article for our own alumni magazine! Thanks, Bonnie :)

That's great, Amanda. Glad I could offer some inspiration!
