Interested in International Law Librarianship?

Registration for the 21st International Association of Law Libraries Annual Course on International Law Librarianship is now open to members and non-members alike. This year's conference is entitled "Order from Chaos: Contexts for Global Legal Information," and will be hosted by Yale Law School in New Haven, Connecticut, October 20th to 23rd. An optional day at Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Massachusetts is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 24. The preliminary program ( offers a more detailed look at the schedule.

As many of you know, New England can be glorious in the autumn. Visitors are drawn from all over the world to our generally mild fall weather and breathtaking fall foliage. Historic New Haven is situated on Long Island Sound, about two hours by rail or car from both New York City and Boston; and it is one hour away from the state's capital city, Hartford. We are planning to make good use of New Haven's geographic advantages -- the conference program includes a visit to the first law school in the U.S., the Litchfield Law School; a full day excursion to the United Nations in New York City; and the optional day, "Law of the Islamic World," hosted by Harvard Law School.

Please see the IALL 2002 Conference Web site at for additional information and registration details. The web site contains useful links to Yale University and other area information, as well as information about accommodations, meals, and the conference schedule. You may download the registration form directly from the site. Registration closes on October 1, 2002. Best regards from New Haven and we hope to see you in October!
