AALL Professional Education
Continuing Professional Education (CPE) strives to meet our core values, particularly in the area of life long learning. The strategic goal of continuing professional education is to ensure that law librarians receive the education and training needed to meet and leverage the challenges of the changing information environment.

The Continuing Professional Education Grants Program (CEGP)
The purpose of the AALL/BNA Continuing Education Grants Program (CEGP) is to encourage program development and promote sharing among AALL entities. This mode of continuing education allows AALL entities to participate in providing quality continuing education opportunities. Do you have a topic idea that is relevant and interesting to law librarians? Learn more about the program and how to submit a proposal here.
CEGP funding is available! Please check the CPE grant information page for upcoming deadlines. Find out what types of programs have been funded through the CEGP since September 2006.

The Calendar of Events allows members to share program and event information (inside and outside of AALL). This calendar is always current. Visit often to view current programs and events including CEGP Programs!

In addition, the AALL-SIS Continuing Education Task Force graciously made contributions to this list of programs. These program snippets will be available for a limited time. This section will be updated with new CEGP programs periodically. Visit CPE Media.
