This article outlines the reasons why law schools should offer classes in international and foreign legal research (IFLR) and proposes a model for such classes. The first section notes the increasing globalization of law practice and its impact on law school programs and curricula. The second section describes the current state of IFLR teaching. The third section outlines the subjects and structure of an ideal IFLR class. I conclude by explaining why IFLR should be taught by librarians.
