Arthur Miller's views on the teaching of legal research

The Law Librarian Blog has posted two videos of NYU Professor Arthur Miller's recent statements about the declining quality of legal research (and its teaching) that were shown during a "town hall" meeting in Portland sponsored by West. He describes the "disconnect" between practice and academics as greater than he has seen at any point in his life. He also complains about the general downsizing of Civil Procedure courses. He feels that many of the "basic" courses have been "crowded out" by new kinds of courses at the expense of needed "skill set development." Here's the link to the interviews:
