The sessions will be:

  • Wednesday, June 1st, 12:00pm-1:00pm

All sessions will be held in the Computer Learning Center (CLC) in the Williams Law Library.

Donate Unwanted Books to the Library

If you're giving your office a Spring cleaning, be sure to send any unwanted books (especially casebooks) to the library. To donate books, please contact Barbara Monroe, monroebr@law.georgetown.edu, 202-662-9143.

New Database: Regulatory Insight

Are you intimidated by administrative law research? Do you have trouble locating regulations that affect a particular section of the US Code? The library now has a new subscription that can assist you with regulatory research: ProQuest Regulatory Insight.

Regulatory Insight allows you to search by Public Law number, US Code citation or Statutes at Large citation. Researchers can locate regulations in the CFR and Federal Register that have been promulgated because of a particular law.

Feel free to ask a librarian if you have any questions about using Regulatory Insight.

New Resource for Comparative Employment Law

The Law Library recently added a new online resource for comparative employment law research, the International Labour and Employment Compliance Handbook. Published under the auspices of the International Bar Association, each country-specific chapter of the Handbook is written by a leading employment law practitioner within that jurisdiction. Chapters follows a standard outline, making it easy to compare employment law and practice across multiple jurisdictions.

Topics covered by the International Labour and Employment Compliance Handbook include hiring, performance evaluations, terminations, layoffs, reductions in force, workplace conditions and benefits, workers' compensation, discrimination, and independent contractors, among others. The Handbook launched with coverage of 24 jurisdictions, representing most of the world's largest economies and employment markets.Additional jurisdictions will be added over time.

The International Labour and Employment Compliance Handbook provides a welcome compliment to the Labour Law and Industrial Relations module of the International Encyclopaedia of Laws, which focuses primarily on employment issues arising under collective bargaining agreements. Conveniently, both of these comparative employment law resources can be accessed from the Kluwer Law Online Looseleafs platform.
