Description/Abstract

This article seeks to answer the questions of what students should learn about legal research and who should teach them. It identifies the cultural tension between those who endorse traditional book-based research and those who embrace computer-assisted legal research, looks at the virtues and pitfalls of both approaches, and reflects on some pedagogical strategies the legal research teaching community might adopt in order to help improve law students' ability to conduct effective and efficient legal research.
