Target Audience: Librarians involved with educational support or teaching; faculty; teaching professionals
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to discuss the practical realities and costs of producing polished video programs in-house.
2. Participants will be able to explain pedagogical benefits of producing instructional and legal education documentaries in-house.

Law librarians and law faculty often search for video programming addressing particular topics and issues. PBS and independent film distributors do provide access to documentaries on such topics as immigration, domestic violence, and prisons. Using such materials, however, requires extensive librarian or faculty preview for gleaning relevant content. What would it take to produce a legal research video or a documentary addressing specific legal principles? This program will review key considerations for producing polished instructional videos and documentaries in-house - including filming in libraries, court rooms, and prisons, as well as personnel and infrastructure costs - and highlight a unique course of documentary filmmaking in law school as a model for legal curricula.
