Programs by Library Type

Professional Development for Where You Work

Legal information professionals support a variety of organizations. At the Annual Meeting & Conference, you’ll find the specialized education you need to keep you at the top of your game—wherever you work. Below you will find a sample of the tailored programming for those working in academic, law firm, and court/government libraries.

  • For those in academic law libraries ...

    “It was very inspiring to see how dedicated and passionate law librarians are regarding government information. It was one of the best conference experiences I have ever had the opportunity to attend. I returned home with a renewed appreciation for the field of law librarianship and eyes on when I can attend my next AALL conference.”

    – Suzanne Sears, Texas Woman’s University School of Library and Information Studies

  • For those in law firm libraries ...

    “My focus was to attend several programs in various categories such as: technology; leadership; and, specific areas of legal practice. Once my schedule was organized, I filled my spare time with visits to the exhibit hall, networking and attending programs outside of my checklist. I planned well and, in the end, was able to capture a wide variety of topics and events. I also had the opportunity to have lunch with our firm’s library director from New York. We had a great visit discussing AALL as well as some firm-related matters.”

    – Deidra Golden Mulligan, Weil, Gotshal & Manges, LLP

  • For those in court/government law libraries ...

    “As a solo librarian—I am a law librarian in a busy courthouse law library in Connecticut—I must echo the words of AALL’s [past] president, Joyce Manna Janto: “The best part of the Annual Meeting…was the energy generated by having so many law librarians under one roof.” The opportunity to talk with other law librarians from all over the country convinced me that, regardless of library type, we all share a common commitment to providing our library patrons the best possible access to the law. The face-to-face contact—the human connection—was truly my favorite part of the conference. However, the concrete information that I took away from attending the conference programs was quite significant.”
