The San Diego Area Law Libraries (SANDALL) is excited to present a unique institute on the challenges and pitfalls of publishing authentic legal materials in cyberspace. It is very easy to put cases and statutes online; it is very difficult to prove who created them and that they were not tampered with prior to the end user accessing them. Programs during the day-long institute will include: passage of the Uniform Electronic Legal Materials Act; current state implementation efforts; information technology tools required to create cyber fingerprints; MCLE luncheon with keynote speaker, Diane Boyer-Vine, California Legislative Counsel, and an off-site reception in the Old Town district following the conclusion of programming.

This event has been made possible by a grant from the AALL/Bloomberg BNA Continuing Education Grant Program and is geared toward law librarians in academic, public and private settings. For the keynote lunch, the San Diego County Bar Association has agreed to partner with us and certifies that the luncheon address has been approved for MCLE by the State Bar of California. We will provide a separate registration for attorneys interested in CLE credit. The SANDALL Winter Institute website is presently under construction, but please feel free to visit it for more detailed information, especially as the date nears:
