CHARGE: This Special Committee is charged to develop a plan that addresses AALL's Strategic Initiative 2D.1, "Actively promote law librarians to the legal community as the premier legal research trainers" and that can be implemented by AALL, its Chapters and other local groups of law librarians, as appropriate. This plan should include methods that can be used to promote law librarians as educators and legal research trainers to other professional groups such as local, state, regional, and national bar associations and law-related and library associations. The Special Committee may propose a variety of alternatives, including the development of a directory of qualified legal research trainers for referral purposes. The Special Committee should consider how promotion activities can be undertaken unilaterally or collaboratively by national, regional/state, or local groups of law librarians.

The Special Committee should prepare an interim report for the Board's November, 2001 meeting and a final report for consideration at its first meeting in July, 2002. The Special Committee's term expires in July, 2002.
