March Meeting: Developments in Online Legal Research and the Ramifications for the Practice of Law

John Joergensen, Associate Dean and Director of the Law Library of Rutgers Law School, will speak about online databases, a topic which impacts all of us on a daily basis. He will discuss how the search experience in online legal databases has evolved to a more “Google-like” interface and shed light on how these search engines really work. Further, Dean Joergensen will introduce new alternatives which are under development and which may offer other options in the near future. Whether you applaud the changes in legal databases or find the newer search interfaces frustrating, this presentation will be most informative to understanding the evolving state of search engines.

Dean Joergensen is well known for his extensive digitization projects. His complete faculty profile is available here: http://law.newark.rutgers.edu/john-p-joergensen
