Bridge the Gap: February 2010

The Wiener-Rogers Law Library has prepared two resource guides to assist attorneys beginning practice in Nevada.  One guide, Information Sources for the New Practitioner, lists articles and websites that address issues often encountered by the new lawyer, as well public law libraries and other research resources, professional associations, codes of professional conduct, court rules, court filing information, and court directories.   The second guide, Ethics and Professionalism for the New Attorney, includes articles and websites that provide advice for new attorneys, information about common ethical problems, and information about the potential professional perils of e-mail, Twitter, and social networking sites.

Many articles are freely available online.  For assistance in accessing any of the articles, please contact Chad Scahtzle, student services librarian (chad.schatzle@unlv.edu; 702-895-2317).
