Federal Legislative History - A Webinar by the Federal Depository Library Program

At some point, every law student will need to become aware of the various materials that were generated in the course of creating legislation which includes committee reports, analysis by legislative counsel, committee hearings, floor debates, and histories of actions taken.

On October 7, 2014, the FDLP, Federal Depository Library Program, will host a 60 minute webinar at 2:00 PM Eastern Time on just this topic. Registration is required but the webinar is free to everyone. The webinar will discuss the ways in which Federal statutes are published and cited, what  Federal legislative histories are and how they are used, the normal steps in compiling and researching Federal legislative histories, and the various resources available, both free and commercial.

You can register today at Federal Legislative History 101.

If you cannot make this webinar at this time, the FDLP archives them for later use and should be available at the archived site.

Don't miss this opportunity to get the information directly from the source.
