Research As Conducted in Law Firms


The popular show The Law Librarian, which plays on Internet radio station blogtalkradio, recently conducted an interview with several law firms on research techniques and sources commonly used on the job. Both small and larger firms were represented in the show. Firm representatives discuss the use of secondary sources, indexes, statutes and case law, as well as the benefits and deficiencies of various formats and sources. Conclusions drawn reflect recent published research on law firm research requirements, and correspond to my observations as well. If you want to hear how you’re expected to research in the law firm setting, I suggest listening to the show, titled What’s Real in the Real World, at:  http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thelawlibrarian/blog/2009/09.
