Student Membership


AALL’s student membership provides you with the tools and resources you need to help start your career as a legal information professional and build your network when you graduate.

Law librarians continue to be a force in leading research initiatives and in this ever-increasing data-driven world—skills in research, collections, data curation, retrieval and accessibility have played an important role. Law librarians do more than answer reference questions or shelve books. They lead strategies in competitive intelligence and knowledge management, create artificial intelligence bots to support common legal services; handle business intelligence, provide solutions for reducing costs; and so much more.
