Programs of Value to Law Firm Librarians

  • Bookmark and Share

"My focus was to attend several programs in various categories such as: technology; leadership; and, specific areas of legal practice. Once my schedule was organized, I filled my spare time with visits to the exhibit hall, networking and attending programs outside of my checklist. I planned well and, in the end, was able to capture a wide variety of topics and events. I also had the opportunity to have lunch with our firm's library director from New York. We had a great visit discussing AALL as well as some firm-related matters."
