Hello List,

Please see the attached announcement about the upcoming webinar hosted by CALL/ACBD.

Many of you on this list have benefited from Lyo's wealth of FCIL knowledge, I'm sure she has more to disseminate if you attend this webinar. 

Thank you.

Global Legal Research: Lyo’s Guide to the Best Resources for Helping Users Who Are Embarking on Foreign, Comparative, and International Law Research Quests

Thursday, December 8, 2022
1:00 - 2:00 PM EST


Researching foreign, comparative, and international law (FCIL) topics can be daunting, but wonderfully rewarding if you can help a user find the information they need. In this webinar, you will find out what the most frequently asked FCIL research questions are and how to prepare to answer them. Lyo will introduce you to the best online and print tools to start with, tell you who the best people resources are, and give you tips on what to do when you’re stumped or don’t know when to stop looking for answers. Whether the user’s FCIL research quest is successful or not is up to you. Are you ready?

Speaker Bio: Lyonette Louis-Jacques, Foreign and International Law Librarian & Lecturer in Law, D’Angelo Law Library, the University of Chicago Law School.

Lyo (A.M.L.S. ’83 University of Michigan, J.D. ’86 University of Chicago) was the Foreign and International Legal Reference Librarian at the University of Minnesota from 1986-1992. She returned to the D’Angelo Law Library in 1992 to begin her current position, where she provides foreign, comparative, and international law (FCIL) research, instruction, collection development, and management services.

Lyo has authored articles in the Chicago Journal of International Law, the International Journal of Legal Information, and many other publications. Her books include International Law Legal Research (contributed bibliographic content); Introduction to International Organizations (co-edited with Jeanne Korman), and most recently, the AALL FCIL-SIS award-winning Lyonette Louis-Jacques on International Legal Information (a compilation of her Slaw "Legal Information" columns from 2010-2020).

She compiled the Law Lists guide to law-related listservs, Jumpstart (a directory of FCIL research specialists), and Comparative Criminal Procedure: A Select Bibliography (GlobaLex). She co-founded (with Mila Rush) the INT-LAW International Law Librarians listserv and co-edited the AALL award-winning CALL Bulletin.

Ms. Louis-Jacques is a member of and has been in leadership positions in many FCIL-related associations including service on the AALL Executive Board (2005-2008) and the IALL Board (2022-date). Lyo’s working languages are English, French, German, Haitian Créole, and Spanish. And her most recent hobby is binge-watching Korean, Chinese, Japanese,  Thai (Lakorn), Filipino, and Turkish dramas.
