Over the last few months, my colleagues from law firms and I have met on creating a dialogue with law school library directors and deans on the state of legal research. We are concerned with the growing trend of solid legal research basics that new associates often lack upon graduation from law school.

But we are not out to point blame at either the law schools or their law students. Our goal is to work with the law schools to better understand this paradigm shift and bridge the resulting gap. As law firm library directors and members of the Greater Philadelphia Law Library Association (GPLLA), we feel it is our professional responsibility to work jointly towards this goal.
