Request for Webinar Proposals

Do you have an idea for a webinar?

AALL invites you to contribute to a great community of experts by providing trends, best practices, and innovations on a broad range of topics that will inspire your colleagues across the profession.

Overview

Proposals will be reviewed on an ongoing basis and you will be notified within 30 days of your submission. Webinar proposals must relate directly to topics important to law librarians and legal information professionals, and address domain and skill areas identified within the AALL Body of Knowledge.  Members are encouraged to submit proposals at any time.

  • AALL will develop a timeline and work with you to finalize the program details.
  • Webinars are scheduled monthly from 12pm to 1pm Eastern time on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.
  • A dry run is held about a week before to ensure a smooth production.
  • AALL will not accept webinar proposals intended solely to promote commercial products.
