Law schools admitting international students to J.D. and other advanced degree programs find that international students in those programs come to American legal institutions with diverse skill sets and varied information needs. This session will guide law librarians to identify barriers in discovering information needs, strategize proactive service opportunities, and employ current library skills and tools to provide resources for international students’ success. By using inherent librarian skills, technologies, campus resources, law school departments, and researching methods to reach diverse student populations, we are able to connect, welcome, and engage a special community of student scholars.
