Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Two Videos from the AALS Section on Legal Writing, Reasoning and Research:
While these videos are persuasive about the importance of legal writing, your description states that they "demonstrate the importance of legal research and writing instruction...". Nowhere in either video was the word "research" even mentioned. I've noticed that in most of the discussion of the importance of skills curricula most of the emphasis is on the 'writing' part of LR&W. Students (or attorneys) who can analyze, synthesize and present arguments will still not succeed if they don't find the appropriate material to work with.
