Among the articles are the following:
- Academic Law Libraries and the Crisis in Legal Education : "Today’s law schools are threatened by declining enrollments and poor job prospects for graduates. Prominent reformers are exposing dysfunctions within the current system and recommending improvements, but many of these proposals misunderstand aca - demic law libraries and their contributions to student and faculty success. This article examines four possible curricular reforms and suggests ways that law librarians can participate in a comprehensive effort to make legal education more useful."
- A Third Place for the Law Library: Integrating Library Services with Academic Support Programs: "This article provides a brief history of the evolution of legal education in America, examining the roles of both law libraries and academic support programs. It then offers suggestions for ways to integrate library services with academic support services."
- Thinking About Technology . . . Lawyers Can’t Be Luddites Anymore: Do Law Librarians Have a Role in Helping Lawyers Adjust to the New Ethics Rules Involving Technology?: "In August 2012, the American Bar Association, recognizing the influence of tech - nology, amended the Model Rules of Professional Conduct. These changes to the standards of professional conduct require attorneys to have some basic technological competence. Ms. Jackson focuses on specific areas in which law librarians may find opportunities to share both newly developed and well-established technological exper - tise with attorneys."
