Title: “Just the facts ma’am?” A contextual approach to the legal information use environment

Abstract: This project describes a study of the information behavior patterns of students at the Villanova University School of Law Farm worker Legal Aid Clinic. The interactions of law student researchers with legal information systems were observed, as well as the overall context of use of those systems. The purpose of this study is to develop a conceptual framework for legal information behavior. This study is significant in that there are relatively few studies of legal information behavior, and there is little research which involves empirical observation. A strong conceptual framework for legal information behavior can be used by librarians and system designers to develop improved legal information systems, services, and instruction.
