This program will explore why legal research and writing courses are often limited to the first-year curriculum, the hierarchical structure of legal research and writing faculty and law librarians in the legal academy, the “separate but equal” status of legal research and writing in the classroom and beyond, effective tools to break down barriers of legal research and writing permeate every facet of law practice, and more.
