Abstract:     
In an attempt to write a history of legal research in law schools, Chiorazzi and Esposito found that very little has been written to chronicle the history of this important function of academic law libraries; but they did rediscover a gem written by Frederick Hicks, the godfather of law librarians, almost 100 years ago. Much of that which he speaks is still relevant. The authors decided that there was no better way to begin a discussion of the history of legal research instruction than the text of Hicks’ article. The authors have reprinted the entire Hicks article and have added their own comments throughout. And, of course, they knew no discussion of Hicks would be complete without the comments of Bob Berring on one of his personal hero’s work. No law librarian has followed more closely in the intellectual footprints of Hicks than Professor Berring.
