Lawyers have become so concerned about the poor research skills demonstrated by new associates that the ABA has requested the National Conference of Bar Examiners to investigate making legal research a bar topic. While a change in the bar format is not going to happen overnight, the message to new lawyers still stands. Job applicants who can demonstrate superior research skills will have an advantage. One way to acquire the legal research skills you need is to take advantage of the Advanced Legal Research Class being taught next semester on Tuesdays from 9:40 to 11:30. The class is open to both second and third year students.
