Annotation/Abstract

Legal research education has been slow to adopt information literacy as a framework, despite the demonstrated utility of this framework when applied to library instruction and assessment. This article defines law student information literacy (LSIL), analyzes how LSIL standards address existing and identified deficits in the current state of legal research education, and offers a copy of the draft LSIL standards. The recently approved AALL Law Student Research Competencies and Information Literacy Principles are appended to the article.
