Can legal research be taught?

Yes it can but … “legal research instructors should discuss the role that legal analysis and argument play in determining the relevance of legal documents. Likewise, to the extent that legal research is taught as part of an integrated legal research and writing class, the instructor must make the connections between legal bibliography, legal analysis, and legal research clear,” wrote Paul Gatz in his RIPS Law Librarian Blog post, Can Legal Research Be Taught? Part 2: Varieties of Relevance. See also his Can Legal Research Be Taught? Part 1: The Relevance Paradox. Recommended. — Joe
