Abstract

The ABA requires that all law students receive “substantial instruction” in legal research. This article discusses a unique legal research program that meets this requirement by focusing on experiential learning. Two components of experiential learning, context and connections, are explained pedagogically and specifically as to legal research curriculum.

Keywords: legal research, legal education, best practices, experiential learning, flipped classroom
