Using Information Literacy to Prepare Practice-Ready Graduates by Ellie Margolis and Kristen Murray is “an attempt to find a new way to think about how to prepare law students to be ‘practice ready’ for the legal research and writing tasks they will face as they enter law practice, and how to equip them with the skills they need to communicate with older generations of lawyers while adapting to new and evolving technologies. In essence, recent law school graduates must be ambassadors of technology, simultaneously able to communicate with lawyers who may not be conversant in, or even understand, the new technologies taking over law practice and able to use those new technologies to be effective lawyers. This article traces the paths that led to the current state of technology in law practice, and discusses ways educators might rethink what it means to be ‘practice ready’ in this environment.” — Joe
