The Hawai`i State Judiciary is sponsoring a free public informational session, “Legal Research on the Internet,” from noon to 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, July 19, in the Supreme Court Conference Room, 417 South King Street.

Sue Powell, the Hawai`i Supreme Court Law Library’s Technical Services Librarian, will give a presentation on the basics of doing legal research on the Internet. Web sites that are considered among the best for locating primary legal resources will be reviewed. Powell will also show users how to access court information on Ho`ohiki, the database of statewide criminal and civil Circuit and Family Court case records, and how to access JIMS (Judiciary Information Management System), the new traffic court information database.

This session is part of the “Lunch ‘n’ Learn” the Law program, a series of free seminars for the general public featuring topics relating to specific areas of the law and the courts. Volunteer presenters include judges, attorneys, court officials and other subject-matter experts.
