About MichALL

The Michigan Association of Law Libraries (MichALL) was formed on 9/16/1976 at a meeting held in conjunction with a meeting of the Michigan State Bar Association in Southfield, Michigan. (55 Michigan Bar Journal 819 (1976)).  

At that time a steering committee chaired by Georgia A. Clark, Wayne State University, was formed. Georgia became the first President.  The first meeting of the new organization was held on 3/9/1977 at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. The chapter was incorporated in the State of Michigan  on 10/1/1981. MichALL became a chapter of the American Association of Law Libraries in the early 1980's.

The membership represent academic, law firm, court, bar, public, government and corporate libraries.  Detroit, Lansing and Grand Rapids are well represented with the remainder of the membership distributed throughout the state of Michigan.

MichALL holds an annual meeting in the Spring.   The Board meets bimonthly.  Both educational programs and a business meeting are conducted at the annual meeting. Education programs have covered a broad variety of areas of law librarianship.  MichALL has held several joint meetings with Ohio Regional Association of Law Libraries, and has participated in the regional meeting in Albany (1987), Chicago (1989) Columbus (1992)  Toronto (1996) and Milwaukee (1998)
