Summary This title looks at the signature pedagogy set out in the Boulder Statements on Legal Research Pedagogy and Legal Research Education, and places it within the framework of the rich literature on information literacy, adult learning and experiential learning. The structures (surface, deep, tacit and shadow) of an ideal pedagogy for legal research educators are addressed. Chapters include assessment; integrating legal research into the curriculum; teaching the values and limits of intermediation and disintermediation; social networking for workplace and school; metacognition; relationship of legal tools and the legal structure; and critical information studies.--Publisher
