Law Firm to Law School: We're not hiring your grads until you improve your legal research program

Here's an interesting blog entry I found on Law Librarian Blog.

Here's my comment: Ouch!

An excerpt:

"I was hanging my hopes on the implementation of a legal research bar exam component but I've just read about a much more effective way to overhaul legal research instruction in law schools; law firms go tell law schools that you won't hire their graduates until their legal research program improves. That's what one law firm did and the law school got the message. "The school ended up completely changing the structure of their program. The firms have the power to do that in law schools."
