Principle III: A successful legal researcher critically evaluates information.


  1. An information-literate legal professional evaluates legal information through cost-benefit analyses.


    1. Understands that there are costs associated with legal research, regardless of type, publisher, or format.
    2. Demonstrates cognizance of the intersection of cost and efficiency in the selection of information format, and exercises professional judgment to choose the best source to serve the research parameters.
    3. Understands the costs and benefits of mediated and disintermediated searching, and uses this knowledge to revise research strategies when necessary.
