Reminder: Law Student Research Competency Task Force's Online Discussion Is Underway
Time for eveyone fed up with the quality of legal research instruction in the legal academy to chime in --- and no, I am not pointing a finger at academic law librarians because they do not control of the curriculum. Hell, are they even listened to when they have damn good ideas?
AALL's Law Student Research Competency Task Force's online discussion started yesterday and will run through Nov. 12. The results of the discussion will be used by the Task Force to prepare a report for the AALL Executive Board, which in turn may be the basis of "an anticipated partnership with the ABA to set standards for law schools in the teaching of legal research." Sign up for the forum here. [JH]
Joe, I do control the legal research curriculum at LMU. I have 25 classes on legal research for all incoming students. Let me tell you, it's good to be king.
-- David, there is always an exception to the rule but then you work for an academic law library director who has made the exception the rule in many respects! -- Joe
