Abstract

AALL recently approved Principles and Standards for Legal Research Competency for law students and lawyers that can be used by academic law librarians to design curricula that will help correct deficiencies in law students' information literacy skills. These principles and standards focus on developing legal professionals' ability to conduct legal research, use and analyze information, transfer knowledge between subject areas, and reflect on learning experiences. Neither the principles themselves nor the publications on which they are based explain how the principles are to be incorporated into the curriculum. Backward design can be used by librarians to create information literacy instruction, assessments, and activities that facilitate student learning of the principles and standards.
