law student information literacy

For a carefully thought-out approach to teaching legal research, take a look at Dennis Kim-Prieto's article explaining "How Law Student Information Literacy (LSIL) Standards Address Deficits Identified by the MacCrate Report and the Carnegie Report, and What They Mean for Legal Research Education & Training".

Kim expalins that "Legal Research Education has been slow to adopt Information Literacy (IL) as a framework, despite recognized demonstrations of the utility this framework presents to be when applied to library instruction and assessment. This article defines Law Student Information Literacy (LSIL), analyzes how LSIL Standards address existing and identified deficits in the current state of legal research education, and offers a copy of the current LSIL Standards."
