Upcoming Legal Research Conferences

My boss e-mailed this to all of us at work so I thought I would pass these announcements along for those who have not yet received the information.

  • Back to the Future of Legal Research will be held at Chicago-Kent College of Law on Friday, May 18, 2007. The one-day conference will include new survey data and a number of panels and presentations that will focus on how best to teach legal research and how to deal with some of the challenges posed by digital legal materials.

  • Teaching the Teachers: Effective Instruction in Legal Research will be held October 18-20, 2007, at the Tarlton Law Library, Jamail Center for Legal Research at The University of Texas. It will focus on the best methods and practices for teaching legal research to today's generation of law students. Conference faculty represents excellence in teaching and communication and come from the judiciary, the practicing bar, and the legal academy. The conference responds to and will further the National Conference of Bar Examiners' initiative to develop a stand-alone component of the bar exam focusing on legal research methods and skills.
