Interview With Law Library of Congress Foreign Law Intern Julia Heron

In Custodia Legis, the blog of the Law Library of Congress in Washington, has been running an interview series featuring members of the library staff. The series started in late October 2010.

The most recent interview is with Montreal-born Foreign Law Intern Julia Heron who researches Canadian law:
"How would you describe your job to other people?
I research various aspects of Canadian law in order to answer public requests and compose brief summaries on the current state of law in my jurisdiction. I also stay apprised in recent developments of Canadian law in order to write articles for the Global Legal Monitor, an online Law Library publication on legal developments around the world. (...)"

"What is the most interesting fact you have learned about the Law Library of Congress?
Just how impressive the Law Library’s collection is! You don’t realize the magnitude of the collection until you’re lost in the sub-basement trying to find a book. If it weren’t for the help of the librarians, I would still be wandering through the stacks."
The Law Library of Congress is the world’s largest law library, with a collection of over 2.65 million volumes from all ages of history and virtually every jurisdiction in the world.
