Legal bibliography can change lives. The Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program is an educational program with an innovative pedagogical approach tailored to effectively facilitate dialogue across difference. It originated as a means of bringing together college students with incarcerated students for a semester-long course held in a prison, jail, or other correctional setting. Speakers will explain how they created and taught advanced legal research at the Washington, DC jail. Advanced legal research students (outside students) and the incarcerated (inside) students were taught together and learned the same legal bibliography skills and techniques for performing legal research.
