Abstract

Generation Z has entered law school. With each new generation comes new education preferences. While research on Gen Z in the legal academy has grown over the past few years, to date none deal explicitly with teaching legal research to Gen Z. This paper will connect Gen Z’s childhood and resulting peer personality to ten tangible pedagogical changes for teaching legal research to Gen Z.
