The American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) is now accepting application for its Call for Papers competition. This annual awards program, which recognizes scholarly essays works on subjects relating to law librarianship, is sponsored by Matthew Bender & Company, a New York based legal publisher.

Papers may be submitted on any subject pertaining to law librarianship and will be judged in three categories: the Open Division, for papers submitted by current AALL members who have been members for five or more years; the New Member Division, for individuals who have been AALL members for less than five years; and the Student Division, for members and non-members who are currently in library school or law school.

The AALL/Matthew Bender & Company Call for Papers is a four-year program which began in 1996. Each year, three recipients will each receive a cash award of $750.

The 1997 recipients will be recognized at the AALL 90th Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland, July 19-24, 1997.

Submission for the 1997 Call for Papers must be postmarked by April 15, 1997, and received by April 22, 1997 at the AALL Headquarters. For an application and submission guidelines, visit the Services section of AALLNET, official AALL Web site, at or contact the AALL Headquarters at 312/939-4764.
