The Private Law Libraries Group of LLSDC met on Friday December 13th for a presentation by Sue Ann Orsini from Fried Frank on Legislative Histories for the Novice Researcher.  As Fried Frank’s Legislative Reference Librarian, Sue Ann spends most of her day compiling legislative histories and her expertise definitely showed during her presentation.  Sue Ann provided an overview of how to do legislative history research and walked through a couple of laws and acts to outline the overall process.  For the presentation, Sue Ann created a flowchart and guide to showcase the various access points and how to use those when locating legislative materials. 

 

The flowchart, guide and overview of compiling a legislative history are available here on the LLSDC website.
