googlizing legal research

Lisa Kinzer at the University of Texas has collected data that confirms what many of us think we've been seeing: law students are quickly adopting WestlawNext for legal research.  Lisa was able to show that the majority (~56%) of first-year J.D. students at the University of Texas School of Law reported using WestlawNext more often than Westlaw or Lexis.  As she says, "This is particularly remarkable when you consider that the students were required to participate in Westlaw and Lexis training, but were not required to learn WestlawNext."

Just click on the article title to read the full draft of her report,The 'Next' Generation: Measuring First-Year Student Response to WestlawNext.
