2000 Annual Meeting and Conference Gateways to Leadership

The theme of the 2000 American Association of Law Libraries Annual Meeting and Conference, "Gateways to Leadership", will encourage law librarians and legal information workers to exercise a dynamic leadership role.

Poised to face the challenges of the present and the uncertainties of the future, law librarians and others who work with legal information have an unprecedented opportunity to shape the path for our profession and those we serve. We will open gateways to leadership in management, technology, and resource identification and allocation.
