The mission of our special interest section, Legal Information Services to the Public Special Interest Section
(LISP) is to improve access to legal information and to promote legal information services to the public.
LISP promotes and encourages its members to provide research assistance
and training, either through local AALL chapters or individually by its
members. LISP publishes a reference brochure, "How to Research a Legal
Problem: A Guide for Non-Lawyers," and the Public Library Toolkit. LISP
awards the Kathy Garner Grant to provide AALL members with financial
assistance to attend the AALL annual meeting. LISP also is charged with
representing its members' interests and concerns within AALL.
Special Committee on Access to Justice met in 2013 and 2014 to explore
access to justice initiatives among all types of law libraries. The
White Paper was the result. Committee members presented the results at
the 2014 AALL Annual Meeting in San Antonio.
