Time-consuming but necessary: Research conferences as a LRW pedagogical tool

In On Embracing the Research Conference (2018), Alyson Drake promotes the use of the research conference in LRW courses because “the individualized formative feedback allows each student to improve in the areas in which they are struggling.” Here’s the abstract:

Research conferences are a tool that should be included in any research or writing instructor’s arsenal. In addition to have multiple pedagogical benefits for students, including providing individualized feedback and another opportunity for formative assessment, legal research conferences help students prepare for practice and comprehend that analysis is a critical part of legal research. Learning that research is an analytical exercise rather than a mechanical task will ultimately help them to be better researchers, writers, and attorneys.
