New Ad Hoc Committee on Legal Research Programs- Your help needed!

The Executive Board decided that it is time to reevaluate the Legal Research summer program’s direction and focus. We want to ensure we are offering a summer program that is relevant to those who need the program. We have decided not to offer a program this year to allow time to develop a top-notch program going forward.

We are looking for people interested in serving on an Ad Hoc Committee to examine who our audience is and what our program's content should be. We need representatives from all types of libraries in WPLLA: academic, firm, court, and county law libraries. Most Committee work  is done virtually so please do not let distance dissuade you from volunteering to be a part of this effort.

If you are interested in helping WPLLA develop this program, please contact Cindy Chicco.

Here is the 2014 WPLLA Annual Report.

Here is the 2015-6 Membership Form.
