The First-Semester Student: The Legal-Problem-Solving Apprentice, Kylie Fletcher

Kylie Fletcher

Students are asked to answer hypothetical legal problems very early in their studies.

Training The Dragon®: The Use Of Voice Recognition Software In The Legal Writing Classroom, 48 The L. Tchr. 181 (2014), Maureen Collins

Choosing The Top Candidate: Best Practices In Academic Law Library Hiring, Ronald Wheeler, Nancy Johnson, Terrance Manion

Terrance K Manion

The authors discuss successful hiring practices in academic law libraries.

The processes examined include: reviewing the vacancy, assessing the library needs, forming an effective search committee, writing a winning job description, checking references, conducting an interview, and making an offer. The authors assert that a successful hire will influence every aspect of your library and, as such, a library needs to devote considerable attention and resources to librarian searches.
