Selby Presents on Teaching Critical Approaches to Legal Research


Professor Courtney Selby presented on incorporating critical perspectives into legal research pedagogy in a virtual symposium hosted by the Northern Illinois University Law Review. Her presentation offered a reflection on the evolution of her advanced legal research course to include both principles of critical information literacy and methods for critical legal research. Her paper, Integration & Transformation: Incorporating Critical Information Literacy and Critical Legal Research into Advanced Legal Research Instruction, will accompany papers from other academic law librarians and scholars in a forthcoming issue of the NIU Law Review.

The presentation took place on January 20, 2023, as part of the NIU Law Review Symposium “Teaching Critical Approaches to Legal Research.”
