This post describes some articles in AALL chapter newsletters that are likely to be interesting to librarians outside those chapters.

The Fall 2013 issue of the Southeastern Law Librarian, publication of the Southeastern Chapter of the American Association of Law Libraries, has a thoughtful essay on the advantages and costs of law librarians with JDs taking the bar exam. The piece would help librarians and those thinking of becoming law librarians think about whether the bar exam makes sense for them. The issue also has an author index for the past volume. The Election issue was also recently published and contains biographies of the candidates.

The Fall 2013 issue of LLAW Briefs, publication of the Law Librarians Association of Wisconsin, holds reports on sessions at the most recent AALL and SLA annual meetings. The Winter 2013 issue has a short article on alternatives to the discontinued Google Reader (Feedly appears to be the most popular option).
