- The China - United States Conference on Legal Information and Law Libraries will be held for May 27-30, 2009 in Beijing, China at the Beijing Friendship Hotel. This conference, initially proposed by a group of members of the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL), is officially co-sponsored by the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) and the State Commission on Legal Education of the Ministry of Education, China. AALL is the first American co-sponsor of the conference. The Conference will provide an opportunity for law librarians and legal information professionals from both countries to share experiences and exchange views in regard to legal information development and law library management. American librarians attending the Conference can share their knowledge and expertise with their Chinese colleagues, including in the area of organizing and sustaining a vibrant, professional association. Additionally, American librarians will be able to meet and connect with Chinese library and information professionals, legal publishers, and government officials responsible for dissemination of legal information.
