Judy is the coordinator for the course entitled "Corpus Juris: Advanced Legal Concepts for Genealogy," which will be held at SLIG in 2016. While this course is sold out for 2016, it should be on everyone's list to take to improve their knowledge and skills as a genealogist.

Judy's course offers students an opportunity for a deeper understanding of the rich research resources of the law, including those generally available only at law libraries. Students will work with legal records and sources, gaining a better grasp of legal history and its implications for research as well as the skills to find and apply the law to solve genealogical problems. Individual sessions will focus on specific legal disciplines (criminal, civil, naturalization and the like) and students will have the opportunity to visit and use the resources of a major university law library.

There are still eight courses left that have seats remaining for the 2016 institute. For more information, go to
