Legal Database Training:- Westlaw Workouts and Lawtel lessons

Do you need training in the Westlaw or Lawtel legal research databases? Would you like to gain a Westlaw or Lawtel user certificate? It could be a useful addition to your CV …

You may have seen database training and certification sessions advertised in your local centre library. However, training is also available online. Westlaw Workouts and Lawtel Lessons are a good option if you are unable to attend the in-centre training.

The online training sessions use Webex technology. You watch a demonstration on your PC, and listen to the trainer on the telephone. All you need is a PC with an internet connection and a telephone.

Please note, we recommend that your use a personal computer for these training sessions – either at home or work. It is not appropriate to use College computers, because of the need to use the telephone, which would be disruptive to other library users.

There are a number of sessions running in the Autumn term. Please see the schedule below for further information. The training sessions are free, but you do need to register beforehand. If you would like to take part, please click on the accompanying registration links.

The training is provided externally by Westlaw and Lawtel database providers. As such, the College has no control over the schedule or content of the training sessions. However, your local library staff can help you register for the sessions, and can provide you with a how to register and participate user guide.

See the registration and set up instructions for webex training in the pages above.
